The four systems will comprise a new development for Iberdrola together with an upgrade to an existing installation for Endesa.

The FGD system for Iberdrola, which features MHI’s Double Contact Flow Scrubber (DCFS) technology, will be installed in the second 367 MW coal-fired generation unit at the Velilla power station in northern Spain and will allow the station to comply with new EU standards set to go into force in 2008.

The FGD system for Endesa will also comply with the new EU standards, upgrading all three coal-fired generation units at the Teruel power station in eastern Spain to DCFS technology.

Under the contracts for both orders, MHI will be responsible for the basic design and supply of major system components. Duro Felguera will perform the detailed design work, civil engineering and installation as well as supply the peripheral equipment.
