Foster Wheeler supplies steam generator for Mexico project

Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq: FWLT) said Aug. 20 that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by Iberdrola for the design and supply of a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG).

The unit will be installed at a cogeneration plant that Iberdrola is building at the Kimberly Clark de Mexico Ramos Arizpe Facility in Coahuila, Mexico. Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“Foster Wheeler’s HRSG will help improve reliability, ease of maintenance, and thermal efficiency,” said Byron Roth, Chief Executive Officer of Foster Wheeler’s Environmental and Industrial Group. “Iberdrola’s decision to select Foster Wheeler for this important project confirms its confidence in our product.”
