Babcock & Wilcox win $14 MM to provide highly efficient cooling systems for UK waste-to-energy plants
Babcock & Wilcox's B&W Environmental business segment has been awarded contracts totaling more than $14 MM to design and supply highly efficient dry cooling systems for waste-to-energy plants in the UK.
B&W Environmental will supply SPIG air-cooled condensers for the projects, which provide significant environmental benefits and are well-suited for renewable energy applications such as waste-to-energy and biomass-fueled power plants. Dry cooling systems using air-cooled condensers can be used in nearly any climate and benefit the environment by eliminating cooling water discharge.
“The world continues to move toward waste-to-energy, biomass and other renewables to provide environmentally friendly and efficient sources of energy,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jimmy Morgan. “We are pleased to work with power producers and industry to provide an extensive range of clean power production technologies including B&W Environmental cooling, emissions control systems and equipment.”
“The UK waste-to-energy and biomass power market continues to be strong and we anticipate more opportunities for B&W Environmental’s technologies to make an important contribution in this market in the future,” Morgan said.
B&W Environmental offers design, engineering, manufacture and installation of dry cooling systems using only ambient air without any need for water, and its technologies are suitable for both renewable and thermal power plants.
