Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) provides cost-effective control of particulate emissions and opacity with our proven pulse jet and reverse air fabric filter technologies. We have provided some of the largest fabric filters in the world. Innovative design features such as long bag technology, integral gas and dust distribution devices, as well as online maintenance capability provide benefits of increased reliability while achieving lower emissions.
The W.H. Sammis plant is the largest of FirstEnergy’s coal-fired electric generating facilities in Ohio. The plant consists of seven coal-fired units totaling 2,220 MW and is located along the Ohio River.View Web Page
The boilers burn coal from a mine adjacent to the power plant. Electricity produced is dedicated to supply eight Midwestern-based public power utilities serving customers across nine states. The design of these boilers was modified to adapt to the requirements of the Prairie State Energy Campus project, including a change in fuels from Powder River Basin sub-bituminous coal to Illinois bituminous coal.
The steam produced by the CFB boiler, in conjunction with the existing steam generation units, will fulfill the needs of the alumina production process in a safe, reliable and efficient manner.View Web Page

Combined heat and power plant will provide process steam for an adjacent malt plant and will normally generate approximately 56 MW net of electricity for the regional transmission grid.View Web Page
B&W installed DRB-4Z® low NOx burners and overfire air, a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) NOx removal system, a dry flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system, a pulse jet fabric filter particulate collector and a powdered activated carbon injection system for mercury removal.
An explosion during a maintenance outage on February 17, 1999, destroyed the original Hawthorn Unit 5 boiler. In August 1999, B&W was released to design, supply, erect and commission a complete replacement boiler on an accelerated schedule. The new boiler began generating electricity in June 2001, only 22 months from project commencement.View Web Page
B&W was selected to design a Vølund™ waste-to-energy (WtE) combustion system and boiler for Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering Co. The 5,600 tons per day plant is among the world’s largest and was completed in 2020.View Web Page
