The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE:BWC) announced that its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Canada Ltd. (B&W Canada) has been awarded a $107 million contract from SaskPower to engineer, manufacture, deliver and construct critical components for SaskPower’s Boundary Dam Unit 3 in Estevan, Saskatchewan.

The boiler retrofit for Boundary Dam Unit 3 is an integral 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.

“We are pleased to play a key role in a project that will not only extend the life of a very critical plant for power generation in Saskatchewan, but also provide a platform for a significant reduction in carbon emissions,” said B&W Canada President Mike Lees. “We appreciate SaskPower’s decision to choose B&W Canada for this important project.”
