Foster Wheeler to build power plant in Italy

Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Italiana SpA, has been awarded a lump-sum turnkey contract by SET Srl for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of a 400MW grassroots combined-cycle plant to be built at Teverola, Italy. The plant is a natural gas-fired power station and will produce electricity to be delivered to the Italian National Grid. The power island includes a multi-shaft arrangement consisting of a gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), and a steam turbine, connected to an air-cooled condenser. Foster Wheeler Italiana will provide engineering, materials supply, erection, construction supervision, pre-commissioning, commissioning, start-up, and testing, up to commercial operation. Foster Wheeler Italiana’s Equipment Division will design and supply the HRSG. General Electric will supply the power package, which includes the gas turbine, the steam turbine, the associated generators, and auxiliary equipment. The plant is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2006.
