Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) announced that its B&W Environmental segment has been awarded a contract for approximately $10 million to install ash-handling equipment that will support its customer’s environmental compliance requirements. The installation work will be performed by Babcock & Wilcox Construction Co., LLC.
The installation includes Allen-Sherman-Hoff® Submerged Grind Conveyors (SGC) and related components designed by B&W Environmental under a contract announced in January 2021 which offer a simplified and cost-effective system with consideration to each unique plant layout.
“Our engineering and construction teams have the depth of knowledge, skill and experience to execute any size project,” said Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer. “We offer single-source expertise as a total solutions provider for a full range of field construction, installation, construction management and maintenance and repair services, whether for our own equipment or competitors’ units.”
“The world is more focused than ever before on producing clean energy and safeguarding the environment and we are pleased to use our expertise to help our customers meet their challenging environmental compliance requirements,” Morgan said.
B&W Environmental’s SGC systems offer plant owners a reliable option to manage ash and protect the environment, and don’t require the removal or displacement of bottom ash hoppers or slag tanks, ash gates, clinker grinders, transfer enclosures and other existing equipment.
