Foster Wheeler to supply biomass-fired boiler

By Gerald Ondrey |

Foster Wheeler AG (Zug, Switzerland; www.fwc.com) announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by ZE PAK S.A. for the design, supply and erection of a 55 MWe biomass-fired circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler island for the Konin Power Station in Poland.
