$40 million steam generator

Foster Wheeler will design and supply a new 200MW steam generator for a new power plant to be built at City Water, Light & Power’s Dallman Generating Station in Illinois.


Foster Wheeler announced today that a US subsidiary has been awarded a contract to design and supply a new 200 megawatt (MW) pulverised-coal-fired steam generator for a new power plant to be built at City Water, Light & Power’s Dallman Generating Station in Springfield, Illinois, USA.



Foster Wheeler will supply the steam generator to Kiewit/Black & Veatch, the owner’s lump-sum turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contractors for the new power plant.



Foster Wheeler’s contract, which exceeds $40 million, will be included in the company’s fourth-quarter bookings.



The new plant will be equipped with Foster Wheeler’s MBF coal pulverisers, low NOx Vortex series burners complete with an advanced closed loop measurement and control system for lower NOx generation, and an integrated selective catalytic reduction system to minimise NOx emissions from the unit.


City Water, Light & Power plans to retire its ageing 76 MW Lakeside plant, northeast of the Dallman facility, after the new power plant is completed in 2009.
