B&W to supply emissions control equipment for Colorado Power Plant

Charlotte, N.C., April 9, 2012 — The Babcock & Wilcox Co. won a contract valued at more than $30 million to design and supply a selective catalytic reduction system for Xcel Energy's coal-fired Pawnee Generating Station in Brush, Colo.

The SCR system, used to control nitrogen oxides emissions from the plant's boiler, is the second major environmental project that B&W has announced it will execute for Xcel Energy this year.

In February, B&W announced a contract to design and supply two spray dry absorber units for sulfur dioxide emissions control at the 500 MW Pawnee plant.

Start-up of the new equipment is scheduled for mid-2014.

B&W has locations worldwide and employs about 12,700 people, in addition to about 10,400 joint venture employees.
