Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its Milan-based subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Italiana SpA, has been awarded a contract by Voghera Energia Srl, valued at approximately USD 113 million, for a grassroots combined-cycle co-generation plant to be built at Voghera, near Pavia, in Italy. The plant is a natural gas-fired power station consisting of a single-shaft gas turbine and steam turbine generator, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and balance of plant (BOP) facilities. Foster Wheeler will provide engineering, material supply, construction, coordination of pre-commissioning, commissioning and testing for this lump-sum, turnkey co-generation plant. The power train (turbine and steam turbine generator) has been purchased by Voghera Energia from ANSALDO. The gas turbine technology selected is Siemens (V.94.3). Operation of the plant is scheduled to begin at the end of 2004.
