CB&I awarded air-quality-control contracts
CB&I (The Woodlands, Tex.; www.cbi.com) has been awarded two contracts with a combined value in excess of $40 million for an air-quality-control program for five existing coal-fired units. The units represent more than 4,000 MW of electric generating capacity.
CB&I will provide turnkey engineering, procurement and construction for implementing modern air-quality-control technologies that will reduce mercury emissions to bring the units in compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS).
"CB&I has assisted many clients with incorporating the necessary air-quality-control retrofits to their coal fired power generation facilities to meet and exceed current regulations. This new project addresses compliance with the latest regulations challenging power generation companies," says Lasse Petterson, CB&I's COO and executive vice president, Engineering, Construction and Maintenance operating group.
CB&I is a leading provider of air-quality-control systems, including wet and dry fluegas desulfurization, dry sorbent injection, nitrogen oxides and mercury removal, and particulate emissions control systems. CB&I has performed emissions retrofits on more than 40,000 MW of power generation within the past 10 years.
