Emissions control system set for coal-fired power plant

Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group Inc., a subsidiary of The Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W, NYSE: BWC), was awarded a $30 million contract to design and supply a selective catalytic reduction system for Xcel Energy’s Pawnee coal-fired power plant in Colorado.

The SCR system, used to control nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions from the plant’s boiler, is the second major environmental project that B&W has announced it will execute for Xcel Energy this year. In February, B&W announced a contract to design and supply two spray dry absorber (SDA) units for sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions control at the 500 MW Pawnee plant.

Start-up of the new equipment is scheduled for mid-2014.
