Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract to design and supply a complete power island for Cleco Corporation in Louisiana, USA.

The approximately 50 MWe power island is an environmental friendly power solution that will take advantage of an existing heat source to create power without any additional greenhouse gas emissions. The heat, provided to Cleco by a third-party supplier, is generated from the production of carbon black, used in items such as tyres and industrial rubber products. This waste heat will be used to produce steam which will in turn create electricity that can be sold and sent to the grid.

Under the contract, Amec Foster Wheeler will supply the power plant’s major equipment, including steam turbine generator, waste heat recovery steam generator, condenser, feedwater heater, deaerator, pumps and cooling tower. Commercial operation of the power plant is expected in 2018.

Gary Nedelka, Group President of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group said: "We are pleased to be able to provide Cleco a comprehensive solution addressing all of their process critical requirements by making beneficial use of an existing heat source without adding to the carbon footprint".
