Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (B&W) (NYSE: BW) announced today that its B&W Environmental business segment has been awarded environmental equipment contracts totaling more than $11 million to supply two replacement wet electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) at two U.S. industrial facilities and rebuild a wet ESP for a third facility.
B&W’s wet ESPs are customizable for a broad range of utility and industrial applications, including the control of particulate emissions, organic fumes and sulfuric acid. B&W wet ESPs also can provide effective flue gas pretreatment for post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture systems to protect the downstream CO2 capture reagent from contamination. Configurations include shop-fabricated vertical flow tubular designs and field-erected horizontal flow designs, depending on size, location and customer preference.
“B&W’s advanced wet ESP technology has provided highly effective particulate emissions control for our utility and industrial customers for many decades,” said Alberto Galantini, Senior Vice President, B&W Environmental. “We are seeing increased interest in this technology as emissions requirements tighten worldwide, and for flue gas pre-treatment applications in CO2 capture processes as customers seek to reduce or eliminate their carbon emissions to combat climate change.”
“We’re proud of the role B&W’s technologies are playing in building a clean energy future for the U.S. and the world,” Galantini said.
In addition to designing and supplying some of the most versatile and advanced wet ESPs on the market, B&W provides engineered upgrades, components and services to allow customers’ equipment to continue to run efficiently and effectively.
