Babcock & Wilcox’s B&W Thermal segment will design, manufacture and supply superheater components for a B&W universal pressure supercritical boiler at Luminant’s Oak Grove Power Plant near Franklin, Texas. The facility provides low-emissions power to more than 1 million central Texas homes and businesses.
Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc. received a contract to install economizers for two B&W TSSG natural-gas-fired boilers at an oil sands project in Alberta, Canada. The project, which was awarded to a subsidiary, is valued at more than $4 million.
Babcock & Wilcox was awarded a contract for approximately $30 million to supply replacement boiler components for an energy production facility. The company also received a contract to install new economizers for two of its natural-gas-fired boilers at an oil sands project in Alberta, Canada. That project is valued at more than $4 million.
A power plant in Tampere, Finland, ordered a biomass-fired boiler to replace an existing boiler that reached the end of its technical lifetime. Valmet will deliver a boiler plant utilizing circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology by the end of 2022. The delivery extends from the boiler silos to the existing flue gas heat recovery system.
When you are shopping for an industrial boiler, one of the most important factors you must consider is the lifecycle cost. After all, the off-the-shelf efficiency of your boiler system can help you predict the cost of your ownership over a 25- or 30-year lifecycle. Efficiency, however, is not the only factor that determines how long your steam boiler will last.
A benefit of a modular, once-through watertube design is the ability to rapidly generate full steam even from a cold start (on-demand steam). On-demand steam can improve steam generation operations by matching the actual load demand with boiler output in near real time. While traditional boilers typically are placed in a standby or idle mode when not in use, such operating techniques are not required with on-demand watertube boilers.
Superior Boiler will relocate its Richmond, Va., subsidiary to Hutchinson, Kan., beginning in the second quarter of 2021. Superior acquired the Richmond business, which produces industrial watertube boilers, as part of its 2016 purchase of English Boiler LLC.

Used for generating steam for power, processing or space heating, or for producing hot water to heat products or a hot water supply, a boiler delivers steam or hot fluid to the end use point at the desired pressure and temperature.
A circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system will be part of a biomass power plant to be built in Omaezaki in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. The boiler, which was ordered for Omaezakikou Biomass Power Plant, a joint venture operation between Toyo Engineering Corp. and Nippon Steel Engineering Co., will be supplied by Andritz.
An ultra-low-NOX boiler installed in California that can produce packaged steam consistently and predictably for 2 ppm NOX or less was installed at Pratt Industries in Lathrop, Calif. Boiler system maker Hurst Boiler Co. of Coolidge, Ga., partnered with Boiler & Steam Performance, Weishaupt Burner, California Boiler and Nationwide Boiler's CataStak SCR to configure and install the system.
