A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by Harbin Electric International (HEI) for the design and supply of two circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) boiler islands and flue gas scrubbers for HIDRO-GEN Energy Import, Export, Distribution and Trading, a subsidiary of Kolin Group of Companies. HEI is the EPC contractor for HIDRO-GEN’s power project to be built near the town of Soma in Turkey.
Foster Wheeler will design and supply two 255MWe steam generators and auxiliary equipment for the boiler islands, flue gas cleaning systems with Foster Wheeler CFB scrubbers, and technical advisory services during erection and commissioning. The CFB boilers will be designed to burn local lignite. Commercial operation of the new steam generators is scheduled for the beginning of 2017.
“This is the largest CFB project yet to be awarded in Turkey, and Foster Wheeler is looking to a bright future within the Turkish power market”, said Tomas Harju-Jeanty, CEO of Foster Wheeler Energia OY Group. “We are happy to have this opportunity to work in collaboration with Foster Wheeler on this important project in Turkey”, said Guo Yu, chairman of the Board and the president of HEI.
