(EnergyAsia, March 1 2013, Friday) — Foster Wheeler AG said a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract to design and supply a circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) steam generator for a coal-fired power plant in the Philippines due to start up in 2015.

The contract was awarded by South Korean engineering firm Daelim Industrial Co Ltd which is building the SM200 Phase 1 coal-fired power station for Sarangani Energy Corporation, a joint venture company between Alsons Consolidated Resources Inc and Japan’s Toyota Group.

Foster Wheeler said it will design and supply the 100 MWe (net megawatt electric) CFB steam generator and the auxiliary equipment for the project in Sarangani province on southern Mindanao island.

The generator will be designed to burn coal while meeting applicable environmental regulatory requirements.

“We appreciate the opportunity to showcase our fuel-flexible and environmentally friendly CFB which will provide power to the local residents in the Philippines,” said Gary Nedelka, CEO of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group.

“Foster Wheeler’s CFB technology is an important part of the solution to meet energy needs while addressing environmental concerns.”

The company said it has received a full notice to proceed on the contract, but declined to disclose the terms and value.
