SaskPower Boiler Rebuild

Babcock & Wilcox Canada Ltd., a subsidiary of the Babcock and Wilcox Co., has been awarded a $107 million contract from SaskPower to engineer, manufacture, deliver and construct critical components to retrofit the Unit 3 boiler at SaskPower's 813 MW coal-fired Boundary Dam Power Station.

The boiler retrofit for Boundary Dam Unit 3 is part of the plant's life extension and conversion to allow for the capture of carbon dioxide through SaskPower's Integrated Carbon Capture and Storage Demonstration Project. While a final decision on the carbon capture system component has been deferred until new federal emission control regulations are completed, B&W Canada will engineer and supply all heat transfer surfaces and a new combustion system with low-NOx technology to provide SaskPower's Boundary Dam with a 30-year life extension and improved plant performance.

The project is expected to be completed in August 2013.
