Foster Wheeler bags CFB steam generator contract in Korea

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Power group subsidiary is awarded a contract by Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co Ltd for co-operation in the design of a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator for the Yeosu Thermal Power Plant 1 Project for Korea South East Power Co Ltd (KOSEP). Commercial operation of the new steam generator is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015. 

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction will supply the major equipment, including the CFB boiler and turbine generator for the Yeosu 1 project which will replace an existing heavy-oil fired unit.

Foster Wheeler will provide design review of the 350 MWe (gross megawatt electric) CFB steam generator for Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co Ltd, Foster Wheeler’s licensee for Utility CFB technology in the region.

“We are gratified by the way in which high-end utility clients around the world continue to embrace Foster Wheeler’s advanced CFB technology,” said Tomas Harju-Jeanty, President and Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Energia Oy Group.

“With the growing use of low-quality coal, of which there are large reserves, demand for CFB boilers is increasing not only in Korea but also in foreign countries. The Foster Wheeler CFB eco-friendly technology is highly efficient in reducing fuel costs due to its ability to use these low-quality coals as fuel,” said Dongsoo Suh, Head, Power Business group, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction.
