Foster Wheeler Power Machinery and Foster Wheeler International Engineering & Consulting (Shanghai), have been awarded a contract by China Petrochemical International Company (SINOPEC)’s Maoming Petrochemical Company.
The contract, for engineering and supply of two 100 MW non-reheat compact circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) steam generators, is valued at approximately $25.5 million.
Foster Wheeler International Engineering & Consulting (Shanghai) will design the project and Foster Wheeler Power Machinery will fabricate the CFB boilers at its manufacturing facility in Xinhui, China.
The Maoming CFB project is part of a major expansion by SINOPEC for production of ethylene. Maoming is located in southwest Guangdong Province, near the Xinhui manufacturing facility.
The boilers will be similar in design to those currently in the initial stage of operation at SINOPEC’s Zenhai II facility, located about 100 miles south of Shanghai.
