Foster Wheeler has won a contract from eTEC E&C to provide a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator for the Seagull cogeneration plant project in Gunsan City, South Korea.

Under the contract, Foster Wheeler will design and supply the 250MWe (gross) steam generator and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system.

The scope of the contract also includes providing technical advisory services during erection and commissioning of the project, owned by Gungjang Energy, an affiliate of eTEC.

The new steam generator, which is scheduled to become operational in mid-2016, is being designed to burn Indonesian sub-bituminous coal.

Foster Wheeler licensee BHI will provide local fabrication and sourcing to meet eTEC’s challenging delivery schedule.

Foster Wheeler Power Group Asia CEO Tomas Harju-Jeanty said that the company’s CFB technology has again been selected for the Korean market, converting economical solid fuels into valuable steam and power.

"Our CFB steam generators give plant owners the flexibility to source fuel to take advantage of fuel pricing and market conditions," added Harju-Jeanty.
