Babcock & Wilcox Co. said it has been awarded a $54 million contract for an emissions-control system for a power plant in Indiana.
Under the contract, B&W will design and supply two wet flue gas desulfurization units for Northern Indiana Public Service Co.’s R.M. Schahfer Generating Station in Wheatfield, Ind.
Charlotte-based B&W said it’s subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, is overseeing the project.
The units will be used to control sulfur dioxide emissions from Schahfer’s 465-megawatt coal-fired utility boilers.
Engineering work will be performed at B&W’s Barberton, Ohio, facilities.
B&W specializes in clean-energy technology and services and employs roughly 12,000.
