Foster Wheeler bags GS Group’s CFB steam generator contract in South Korea

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s subsidiary of Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by GS E&C for the design and supply of one circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator for the Dangjin 4 Biomass Power Plant Project for GS EPS, a subsidiary of GS Group. The plant will be located in Dangjin, a city in South Chungcheong Province, South Korea.

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed and the contract value will be included in the company’s first quarter 2013 bookings. Commercial operation of the new steam generator is scheduled for third quarter 2015.

Foster Wheeler will design and supply the 105 MWe (gross megawatt electric) CFB steam generator and auxiliary equipment for the boiler island, including a Foster Wheeler baghouse for flue gas cleaning. The steam generator will be designed to burn palm kernel shells with co-firing of coal, and wood pellets as back-up fuel, while meeting applicable environmental regulatory requirements.

“Biomass residue from palm oil industries is an abundant renewable energy fuel in Southeast Asia. We are pleased to have yet another opportunity to demonstrate Foster Wheeler’s CFB technology as a solution to meet energy needs while addressing environmental concerns,” said Gary Nedelka, Chief Executive Officer, Global Power Group, Foster Wheeler.
