Coal-fired power plant to be upgraded by B&W

The Babcock & Wilcox Co. (NYSE: BWC) said its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co. Inc. (BWCC) has been awarded a contract worth more than $75 million to provide construction services for the installation of environmental equipment at Northern Indiana Public Service Co.'s (NIPSCO) coal-fired R.M. Schahfer Generating Station.

BWCC will erect and install two B&W-designed wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) absorber vessels, and associated reagent slurry preparation and dewatering equipment for the plant's 465 MW Unit 14 and 515 MW Unit 15 coal-fired utility boilers. BWCC said it also will procure and erect the absorber and dewatering island structural steel for the wet FGD systems.

B&W previously said it would design and supply the wet FGD units and related components for the project.

Start-up of Unit 14 is scheduled for fall 2013 and Unit 15 for fall 2015.
