Charlotte-based Babcock & Wilcox Co. said its subsidiary has been awarded a $26 million contract with Consumers Energy’s D.E. Karn power plant in Hampton Township, Mich.
B&W’s Power Generation Group will design and supply two spray dry absorber systems for the plant.
The systems, also known as dry scrubbers, will be used to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from the plant’s two 275-megawatt coal-fired boilers. B&W will also supply a lime-preparation system and two recycle ash systems for the plant.
Engineering is taking place at the company’s Barberton, Ohio, operations. The first unit is scheduled for operation in the spring of 2014, with the second unit to follow in the fall of 2014.
