Engineering contractor Foster Wheeler has announced that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract to design, supply and provide site-advisory services for two sets of solar-steam generators, as well as low- and high-pressure feedwater heaters.

The contract was awarded by the project’s EPC contractor, a joint venture created by Spanish engineering consultancies Sener and Cobra.

The equipment will be integrated into the Valle 1 and Valle 2 Solar Thermal Power Plants, located in San José del Valle, Cadiz, Spain.
