Babcock & Wilcox wins major air pollution control contract

Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W), a subsidiary of McDermott International, Inc. (Houston, TX), has received a contract valued at more than $70 million from Great River Energy to provide a circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler and related emissions control equipment for installation at Great River’s Spiritwood Station combined heat and power plant near Spiritwood, North Dakota. The air pollution control equipment to be supplied under the contract includes a pulse-jet fabric-filter baghouse for particulate control, a spray-dry absorber flue gas desulfurization system, and a selective non-catalytic reduction system for nitrogen oxide control. “This is the first project B&W has done for Great River Energy, and it presents an outstanding opportunity to showcase our well-established CFB and environmental systems technology and meet the needs of our customer,” said Brandon Bethards, president of B&W’s Power Generation Group.
