Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed, and the contract value will be included in the company’s bookings for the second-quarter of 2010.

“This is the first contract awarded to Foster Wheeler by Polimex-Mostostal, a major Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor in the Polish market, and we are pleased to have this opportunity to work together,” said Mr. Jarosław Mlonka, president and chief executive officer of Foster Wheeler Energia Polska. “This award exemplifies PKE’s continued confidence in Foster Wheeler’s highly reliable CFB design. Four of our CFB steam generators are currently online at existing PKE plants, including the 460 MWe supercritical CFB steam generator at the Lagisza Power Plant in Poland.”
