N.C. Firm Gets $55M Deal To Refurbish West Michigan Power Plant

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. Campbell Generating Complex near West Olive.

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.

The Campbell projects are the most recent in a series of projects B&W is performing for Consumers Energy. Previously announced contracts include an environmental upgrade at Consumers Energy’s D.E. Karn plant in Michigan, a construction project at the Campbell plant, and the design and construction of a selective catalytic reduction system for the Campbell plant.

“As our customers work to comply with new federal emissions standards, we’re ready to meet their needs as a total environmental solutions provider,” said B&W PGG President and Chief Operating Officer J. Randall Data. “We would like to thank Consumers Energy for choosing B&W to serve it on these important projects and look forward to continuing to provide valuable services for the utility’s power generation fleet.”

In addition to supplying equipment, B&W will provide technical support services for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning.
