Foster Wheeler to Supply Heat Recovery Steam Generator In Mexico
Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq:FWLT) announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by Iberdrola, for the design and supply of a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). The unit will be installed at a cogeneration plant that Iberdrola is building at the Kimberly Clark de Mexico Ramos Arizpe Facility in Coahuila, Mexico.
Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed, and the contract value will be included in the company’s third-quarter 2014 bookings.
Foster Wheeler will design and supply the HRSG and provide advisory services for erection and start-up of the unit, which will incorporate a dual pressure level design with the capability to produce steam with or without combustion turbine operation. The HRSG will be coupled to a GE LM6000PH combustion gas turbine. Commercial operation of the HRSG is scheduled to begin during the first quarter of 2016.
“Foster Wheeler’s HRSG will help improve reliability, ease of maintenance, and thermal efficiency,” said Byron Roth, Chief Executive Officer of Foster Wheeler’s Environmental and Industrial Group. “Iberdrola’s decision to select Foster Wheeler for this important project confirms its confidence in our product.”
