USA: supercritical boilers

McDermott International Inc. has announced that its subsidiary, The Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W), has signed a MoU to supply eight identical supercritical coal-fired boilers and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems as part of TXU’s solid-fuel power generation program in Texas. The eight boilers, each with a capacity of 858MW, will be B&W supercritical Spiral wound universal pressure units. The units will burn Powder River Basin coal. The SCR systems will be installed to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions to below the levels required by federal and state environmental standards. B&W’s scope includes boiler pressure parts and auxiliary equipment such as pulverizers, sootblowers, fans and drives, flues and ducts and technical advisors for construction, commissioning and training. The new boilers will be installed at the following TXU power stations in Texas: Big Brown, Lake Creek, Martin Lake, Monticello, Morgan Creek, Valley and two at Tradinghouse. Design of the boilers is currently underway at B&W’s headquarters in Barberton. Babcock & Wilcox Beijing Co., B&W’s joint venture company in China, will provide a majority of the pressure part fabrication. B&W’s Diamond Power International Inc. subsidiary will supply the sootblowers. Delivery of materials is scheduled to begin in 2007. The first unit is targeted to be online in the fall of 2009, with the rest online in sequence through mid-2010.
