The first U.S. order is for engineering and long-lead equipment for an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) retrofit on a Midwestern coal-fired unit so the unit can meet requirements of the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for particulates. The plant will use dry sorbent injection and activated carbon injection. The upgrades are scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2016.
Two additional U.S. contracts were received for ESP equipment and optimization services for utility boilers in the Midwest, with deliveries scheduled for the third quarter 2015. In addition, an order for upgrades to an existing selective catalytic reduction system was received for an industrial gas-fired boiler. Delivery is scheduled for third quarter 2015.
In the UK, Fuel Tech will supply its NOxOUT selective non-catalytic reduction system for a biomass-fired unit. Delivery is scheduled for fourth quarter 2015.
In China, five orders were received for multiple Ultra systems to be installed on coal-fired units being retrofitted with NOx reduction technology. Deliveries are scheduled for third quarter 2015.
