Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG, NYSE:BWC) has been awarded a contract valued at $40.3 million by Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) to engineer, procure, construct and commission an emissions control project for the Ray D. Nixon Power Plant, south of Colorado Springs. CSU is installing emissions controls to comply with the state’s Regional Haze State Implementation Plan, which requires compliance with new sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission levels by the end of 2017.

“Environmental regulatory compliance is critical to the long-term viability of the U.S. coal fleet, and B&W PGG offers a full suite of technology options to assist utilities and industry in meeting emissions standards,” said Mark Low, senior vice president, B&W PGG Global Services Division.
Under the contract, B&W PGG will design, manufacture and construct a spray dryer absorber (SDA) to control SO2 emissions for the plant’s 208-MW coal-fired unit.
The design phase is currently underway and construction is expected to begin in October.

The project is scheduled to reach commercial operations by Dec. 31, 2017.
