Foster Wheeler to build power plant in Ireland

Foster Wheeler Ltd. has announced today that its Finland-based subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Energia Oy, has been awarded a USD 342.2 million power plant contract by the Irish state-owned Electricity Supply Board (ESB). The contract covers the engineering, procurement and construction of two peat-fired power plants of 150 MWe and 100 MWe capacity, respectively, in the Irish Midlands. The new plants will use Foster Wheeler’s advanced circulating fluidised-bed (CFB) boiler technology, the leading technology of its type in burning low-calorific-value fuel, such as peat, both efficiently and in full compliance with the latest European Union environmental emission norms. A total of 51 boilers, with a combined capacity of close to 3000 MWth, have been delivered by Foster Wheeler Energia Oy for firing peat primarily, while another 22 boilers, totalling approximately 2000 MWth, have been supplied that use peat as a secondary fuel.
