Biomass power plant to be built by B&W

Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co. Inc. (BWCC), a unit of The Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B&W, NYSE: BWC), has been awarded a $186 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 75 MW biomass power plant for Berlin Station LLC in Berlin, N.H. A unit of Delta Power Services LLC, a B&W company, has been awarded a separate six-year, $19 million contract to provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the plant.


BWCC will convert the former Fraser Paper Mill to a 75 MW biomass power plant that will be fueled by wood chips and logging waste. BWCC's scope of work is to engineer, procure and construct the plant and all associated balance of plant support systems, including the turbine/generator and fuel handling equipment. BWCC will erect all company-supplied equipment.


BWCC and its affiliated companies will design and supply material to convert the plant's existing black liquor recovery boiler to a bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler; design and supply the plant's selective catalytic reduction system for nitrogen oxides control, a baghouse for the control of particulates emissions, a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) and other plant equipment; and design and supply ash handling equipment.


The plant start-up is scheduled for fall of 2013.
