Foster Contracts for Solar Steam Generation Equipment

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/5/2009, Location: Europe

Foster Wheeler AG announced that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by SENER-AMSA JV to design and supply the steam generating equipment for the new Gemasolar Project tower-type concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in Seville, Spain. In parallel, SENER-AMSA also awarded Foster Wheeler the feedwater heater equipment contract for the facility.

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on these contracts. The terms of the agreements were not disclosed, and the contract values will be included in the company’s bookings for the first-quarter of 2009. Initial operation of the solar plant is expected in 2010.

The CSP plant, as designed by SENER-AMSA, utilizes the SENER Central Receiver System (CRS) design with molten salt heat storage, which provides higher efficiency and utilization factors than units without storage. The salt is heated by concentrated solar light reflected by heliostat mirrors toward a tower-mounted receiver. Once heated, the salt is then circulated through the Foster Wheeler equipment to produce high quality steam for electricity generation.

“Foster Wheeler was instrumental in the design development of solar thermal power technology in the 1970s and early 1980s,” said Eric Svendsen, chief executive officer of Foster Wheeler Energia, S.A. “The renewed global interest in solar power gives us the opportunity to apply this expertise to the advanced solar thermal power plants being developed today. Our contract with SENER-AMSA JV is an important step in that direction. Coupling our expertise in solar steam generation technology with our capability to deliver competitive, high-quality equipment brings exceptional value to CSP solar projects like Gemasolar.”
