B&W to supply $26 million emissions controls Michigan coal plant

Charlotte, N.C., July 20, 2011 — The Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. won a $26 million contract to design and supply two spray dry absorber systems for Consumers Energy's D.E. Karn power plant in Hampton Township, Mich.

The SDA systems, also known as dry scrubbers, will be used to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from the Karn plant's two 275 MW coal-fired boilers. B&W PGG will also supply a lime preparation system and two recycle ash systems for the plant.

Engineering is underway at the company's Barberton, Ohio operations. The first unit is scheduled for operation in spring 2014, with the second unit to follow in fall 2014.
