Foster Wheeler Awarded Contract for Advanced-CFB Steam Generator in Russia

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/12/2008, Location: Asia

Foster Wheeler announced that its Finnish subsidiary Foster Wheeler Energia Oy, part of its Global Power Group, has been awarded a contract by PJSC EnergoMashinostroitelny Alliance (EM Alliance) for a 330 MWe (gross megawatt electric) advanced circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator to be located in Novocherkassk, Russia. The Novocherkasskaya GRES facility is owned by The Sixth Wholesale Power Market Generating Company (WGC-6).

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the award were not disclosed, and the contract will be included in the company's bookings for the first quarter of 2008.

Although Foster Wheeler CFB technology has been installed in more than 300 locations worldwide, this is the first CFB to be built in Russia and the second CFB ordered in the world which utilizes advanced supercritical once-through (OTU) steam technology. The first such CFB is located in Poland, where Foster Wheeler is currently building a 460 MWe OTU-CFB that is planned to come on-line in the first quarter of 2009. OTU-CFB technology improves overall power plant efficiency, resulting in producing about 5-10% more electricity from the same amount of fuel consumed as compared to a conventional subcritical steam power plant. Further, this fuel savings translates into approximately the same amount of reduction for the plant's air and ash emissions helping to reduce the plant's environmental impact.

Foster Wheeler will supply the steam generator, auxiliary equipment and advisory services for erection and commissioning of the boiler island. The boiler will be designed to burn both anthracite and bituminous coal along with a potential of 30% anthracite slurry.
