A joint venture (JV) of power equipment provider Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group (B&W PGG) and construction firm Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company (Burns & McDonnell) has secured a $110m contract for Interstate Power and Light’s (IPL) Ottumwa generating station power plant in Iowa.
As per the contract, the JV will replace turbine rotor, boiler pressure parts, and balance of plant equipment for the 726MW coal-fired power plant.
The company will also provide construction services for the power plant.
B&W PGG will design and supply the boiler’s pressure parts for the Ottumwa power station.
Material delivery for this portion of the project is scheduled for July 2014.
B&W PGG president and chief operating officer J. Randall Data said, "We’ve been working closely with Burns & McDonnell to deliver outstanding service to our customer on this important EPC project."
"We appreciate the confidence IPL has shown in again selecting our team for work at the Ottumwa plant," Data added.
In 2012, the JV received an engineer, procure and construct (EPC) contract for Ottumwa power station’s environmental control systems.
The company will replace the auxiliary equipment concurrently with the power station’s previously planned environmental upgrades.
The coal-fired Ottumwa generating station is co-owned by IPL and MidAmerican Energy.
