Foster Wheeler to supply HRSG for BP’s Castellon oil refinery

24 August 2007 – Foster Wheeler has announced that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract for a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) by BP Oil Refineria de Castellon, S.A. The boiler will be built at BP’s oil refinery in Castellon, Spain.

The terms of the contract, which will be included in Foster Wheeler’s third-quarter 2007 bookings, were not disclosed.

Foster Wheeler will design, supply and erect the HRSG, and will also provide start-up supervision for the HRSG, which will be coupled to a Siemens SGT600 combustion turbine, producing 26 MW for the refinery.

Commercial operation of the boiler is scheduled for the fourth quarter 2008.

In 1996, Foster Wheeler supplied another HRSG for the Castellon refinery. The HRSG, which is designed to recover heat from the gas turbine exhaust and convert it to usable steam, which improves the plant power-generating efficiency, is the second to be supplied to the Castellon refinery.
