B&W Thermal Awarded $20 Million Installation Contract to Upgrade and Extend Lifespan of Power Plant

Posted December 2, 2020

(AKRON, Ohio – December 2, 2020) – Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) (NYSE: BW) announced today that its B&W Thermal segment will install replacement boiler pressure parts for a power plant in North America. The contract, valued at more than $20 million, was awarded to B&W’s subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co., LLC (BWCC).

Under this contract, BWCC will install new superheater sections and furnace panels, some of which were designed and supplied by B&W under a previous contract, to help extend the life of the plant’s operations.

“B&W Thermal has unmatched experience with installing equipment to maintain and extend the operable lifespan of boilers and other equipment for the North American power fleet,” said B&W Chief Operating Officer Jimmy Morgan. “Whether installing or servicing B&W’s or our competitors’ equipment, we have the resources and knowledge to respond to customers’ needs and deliver reliable solutions.”

“As many of our competitors have stepped back from providing cost-effective plant maintenance and upgrades, B&W Thermal has stepped up to continue supplying these critically important services. We are seeing increasing demand from our customers as they plan long-term strategies in upgrading or converting technologies,” Morgan said.

Installation is scheduled to begin in February 2021, with completion anticipated later in the spring.

B&W Thermal is a single-source turnkey supplier of a full range of field construction, construction management and maintenance services. With significant experience with a wide range of projects — from large, complex projects to small unanticipated quick turnaround repair needs — B&W Thermal has the depth of knowledge and responsiveness necessary to safely deliver dependable services of any size at any facility.
