Foster Wheeler Iron Ore Contract

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction subsidiary has been awarded a concept study by Western Cluster Limited (WCL) for power plant facilities to serve planned iron ore mines in Liberia. The value of the contract was not disclosed. WCL plans to build three iron ore mines in Liberia. The study to be undertaken by Foster Wheeler will investigate various options for greenfield captive power facilities to meet the mines’ expected power demand.

The study will evaluate various power generation technologies and feedstock sources as well as options for the supply of power to multiple operational locations. The study is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2013.

“This win is in line with our stated aim to build our position in the minerals and metals sector as part of our diversification strategy. This award demonstrates our ability to leverage our recognized capability in power generation, our project delivery track record and our South African operational presence into the mineral and metals sector in Africa,” said Dave Lawson, President and Global Leader of Minerals & Metals, Foster Wheeler.
