Foster Wheeler bags contract for CFB steam generator from Lunds Energi

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG announced that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by Lunds Energi, a municipality-owned energy supplier in the Southern region of Sweden, for the design, supply and erection of a 35 MWe (gross megawatt electric) biomass-fired circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler island. Commercial operation of the new steam generator is scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.

Foster Wheeler will design and supply the steam generator and auxiliary equipment, and will carry out the erection and commissioning of the boiler island. “The fuel flexibility of Foster Wheeler’s CFB technology provides an excellent solution for biomass power generation because it can utilize a wide range of renewable and waste fuels. Our CFBs can divert waste headed for landfills and instead convert this waste into valuable steam and electricity,” said Tomas Harju-Jeanty, President and CEO, Foster Wheeler Energia Oy Group.
