The Babcock & Wilcox Company announced today that its subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc., has been awarded a contract for more than $35 million to design and manufacture two boilers and air quality control equipment for a power plant owned by the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The two B&W PGG circulating fluidized bed boilers each will be capable of producing up to 140,000 pounds per hour of steam for campus heating and power. B&W PGGโ€™s scope of work also includes the design and supply of a pulse jet fabric filter baghouse for particulate control, fuel feed system, boiler auxiliaries, dry sorbent injection system and structural steel.

โ€œWeโ€™re pleased that the University of Alaska Fairbanks has chosen B&W PGG and its technology to upgrade its campus power plant,โ€ B&W PGG President and Chief Operating Officer J. Randall Data said. โ€œThis project is an example of how more efficient boilers and new pollution control equipment can make significant contributions to emissions reductions and the production of cleaner energy.โ€

Engineering is currently underway and material delivery is scheduled for spring 2016. Plant start-up is anticipated in spring 2018. The contract was booked in the third quarter.
