The B&W Thermal segment of Babcock & Wilcox was awarded a contract for more than $6 million. B&W Thermal will convert a Middle East chemical plant’s six boilers from oil to a lower-emission fuel. The scope of the project includes the design, manufacture and supply dual-fuel burners as well as commissioning and other technical services.

In related news, B&W announced that its B&W Renewable segment has been awarded a contract for more than $11 million to design, manufacture, supply and install boiler equipment for a biomass boiler in Canada. B&W Renewable will replace pressure parts for the boiler and upgrade the design of its wood feed and air systems. B&W’s biomass-fueled boilers are used to generate heat, process steam, electricity, syngas and/or bio-oil in a range of industrial and utility plants.
