Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc.’s subsidiary the Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W) has been awarded a contract for more than US$18 million to engineer, manufacture and install a replacement reheater at Xcel Energy’s Pawnee Generating Station near Brush, Colorado, US.
The components, which include horizontal and vertical reheater banks, will be manufactured in B&W’s Monterrey, Mexico facility and are scheduled for delivery in February.
“Xcel Energy is a long-time B&W customer, and we value our strong professional relationship,” commented B&W Global Services Division Sr. Vice President Mark Low. “We believe our technically advanced design will offer a significant improvement in the operation of the unit.”
Low continued: “We appreciate the confidence Xcel Energy has shown in B&W and our service capabilities.”
The B&W reheater also features redesigned wall attachments that will facilitate simpler and faster installation.
The 500 MW Pawnee Unit 1 start up is scheduled for May 2016.
