Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) announced today that its B&W Thermal segment will install replacement boiler pressure parts for a power plant in North America. The contract, valued at more than US$20 million, was awarded to B&W’s subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co., LLC (BWCC).
Under this contract, BWCC will install new superheater sections and furnace panels, some of which were designed and supplied by B&W under a previous contract, to help extend the life of the plant’s operations.
“B&W Thermal has unmatched experience with installing equipment to maintain and extend the operable lifespan of boilers and other equipment for the North American power fleet,” said B&W Chief Operating Officer, Jimmy Morgan. “Whether installing or servicing B&W’s or our competitors’ equipment, we have the resources and knowledge to respond to customers’ needs and deliver reliable solutions.”
“As many of our competitors have stepped back from providing cost-effective plant maintenance and upgrades, B&W Thermal has stepped up to continue supplying these critically important services. We are seeing increasing demand from our customers as they plan long-term strategies in upgrading or converting technologies,” Morgan added.
Installation is scheduled to begin in February 2021, with completion anticipated later in the spring.
