Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) announced that its B&W Thermal segment has received an order for approximately $7 million to provide equipment and services for a utility customer in Southeast Asia.
B&W will design, supply, install and commission boiler cleaning equipment and controls and provide other services for an upgrade project for the customer’s plant.
“Our growth strategy in the Asia-Pacific region continues to gain momentum,” said Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer. “We see tremendous opportunities for our business in Southeast Asia, Australia and elsewhere and we are strategically pursuing core technology work throughout these areas.”
Since announcing the creation of its Asia-Pacific headquarters last year, B&W has added significant resources in the region, including business development and sales representatives, project managers and others.
B&W’s focus for the Asia-Pacific region includes upgrades, parts, equipment and other services to customers in the renewable, environmental, power and industrial markets, including to under-serviced local markets and the pulp & paper and petrochemical sectors.
