Xcel Energy’s coal-fired Pawnee Generating Station in Brush, Colo. The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE: BWC) announced that its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG) has been awarded a contract valued at more than $30 million to design and supply a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for Xcel Energy’s coal-fired Pawnee Generating Station in Brush, Colo.

The SCR system, used to control nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions from the plant’s boiler, is the second major environmental project that B&W has announced it will execute for Xcel Energy this year. In February, B&W announced a contract to design and supply two spray dry absorber (SDA) units for sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions control at the 500 megawatt Pawnee plant.

“We’re appreciative that Xcel Energy has selected B&W to help it comply with the Colorado Clean Air-Clean Jobs Act,” said B&W PGG President and Chief Operating Officer J. Randall Data. “B&W‘s many decades of experience with environmental controls is unmatched in the industry and allows us to provide solutions for all of our customers’ emissions reduction needs.”

Start-up of the new equipment is scheduled for mid-2014.
