Foster Wheeler to build circulating fluidized-bed steam generator for E.ON Värme Sverige

30 July 2008 - Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by E.ON Värme Sverige AB, Sweden for a waste-fuel-fired circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler island to be located at the combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Norrkoping, Sweden.

This waste-to-energy plant using Foster Wheeler's CFB technology will divert waste headed for landfills and convert it into valuable steam and electricity.

Foster Wheeler CFBs have inherently low levels of SOX and NOX emissions, which makes them ideally suited for clients who are seeking an environmentally friendly, economical and highly efficient use of municipal waste compared with traditional incineration or older burn technologies.

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the award were not disclosed, and the contract will be included in the company's bookings for the third quarter of 2008.

Foster Wheeler will supply the 84 MWe CFB boiler and auxiliary equipment and will carry out the erection and commissioning of the boiler island. The boiler will be designed to burn Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) composed of sorted household and industrial wastes.

The power plant will produce electricity for the local grid and will also provide heat and process steam to an adjacent industrial plant. Initial operation of the new boiler is scheduled for the fall of 2010.
