Foster Wheeler awarded $75m

Foster Wheeler has been awarded $75m to erect a 400MWe pulverised-coal steam generator at the Springerville Generating Station in Arizona.


Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract to erect a 400MWe pulverised-coal (PC) steam generator at the Springerville Generating Station in Arizona.



The contract, worth $75m, was awarded by Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District (SRP) and will be included in the company’s second-quarter 2007 bookings.



Foster Wheeler will erect the PC boiler components, associated piping, auxiliary equipment and selective catalytic reduction systems. Erection of the boiler is expected to begin in April 2007, with commercial operation scheduled for late 2009.



Foster Wheeler was previously awarded a contract in 2006 to supply the PC boiler to SRP for this project.


‘We saw a lot of value in having Foster Wheeler supply and erect our new boiler for Unit 4 and are convinced that Foster Wheeler is the right company to have on our team,’ commented Bill Rihs, manager, Major Projects, SRP.
