Foster Wheeler bags two solar steam generator contracts in Spain


ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s, Global Power Group subsidiary has been awarded contracts to supply solar steam generator systems to two separate solar projects in Spain.

The first of the two contracts is with UTE Africa Solar, the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for the La Africana Solar Thermal Power Plant, located in Fuente Palmera (Cordoba, Spain) to supply steam generating components for a single 50 MWe train thermal plant. The equipment will be integrated into a concentrated parabolic trough thermal solar plant using molten salts to store the sun's energy and provide additional hours of plant operation without sun radiation. The equipment delivery is scheduled for second-quarter 2012.

The second of the two contracts is with UTE Termosolar Olivenza (a joint venture created by Acciona and Seridom), the EPC contractor for the Olivenza Solar Thermal Power Plant, located in Olivenza (Badajoz, Spain) to supply a similar scope as that of the La Africana project. This 50 MWe plant consists of 2 x 25 MWe trains and also utilizes concentrated parabolic trough technology with thermal oil as the heat transfer fluid. The equipment delivery is scheduled for first-quarter 2012.

Foster Wheeler included the contract values in the company’s first-quarter 2011 bookings.

“Undoubtedly, these awards are recognition of our commitment to solar energy. Since 1973 we have been a leader in the solar thermal power market and are thrilled to be a part of its fast paced future,” said Jesus Marti, CEO, Foster Wheeler Energia, SL in Madrid.
