CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Babcock & Wilcox Co. (NYSE:BWC) Monday announced that its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group Inc. has been awarded contracts valued at approximately $55 million to design and supply environmental control equipment and design and engineer a boiler economizer for Consumers Energy’s J.H.

B&W will supply four spray dry absorber systems to control sulfur dioxide emissions for the 835 megawatt Campbell Unit 3. B&W also will supply a lime preparation system, ash handling systems and a B&W V-Temp economizer for the plant.
