Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) has recently announced that its B&W Thermal segment will supply and install replacement secondary air heater components for a US power plant.
The contract was awarded to B&W’s subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co. LLC (BWCC), and is valued at approximately US$5 million. Concurrent with this work, the company will resume outage maintenance work at the same plant that had been delayed since spring 2020. The postponed maintenance work contract was awarded to BWCC in 2019 and is valued at approximately US$8 million.
“B&W Thermal has the technologies and capabilities to provide a complete suite of replacement parts, equipment and field services to the global power fleet,” said B&W Chief Operating Officer, Jimmy Morgan. “We’re pleased to build on our strong relationship with our customer and appreciate the confidence they place in the work we perform.”
“We’re also encouraged that this project that was temporarily paused earlier this year has restarted, allowing us to continue to provide critical services to this customer,” Morgan added.
B&W Thermal’s regional construction service centres, which allow the company to quickly and efficiently serve customers anywhere in North America, will provide support for these projects. Both projects are expected to be completed in 4Q20.
