Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) announced that its B&W Environmental and B&W Renewable business segments have been awarded a contract for approximately USD 65M by Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant Ltd. (LSEP) to provide engineering services and advanced technologies for the LSEP Sustainable Energy plant located at Lostock Gralam near Manchester, UK.
B&W’s global operations will provide technologies and services for the project, including GMAB™ flue gas treatment technologies, SPIG™ air-cooled condensers, Diamond Power® boiler cleaning equipment and engineering in both B&W’s Denmark and U.S. offices.
B&W Renewable has many decades of experience and extensive expertise with technologies that generate steam and power from municipal and industrial waste fuels.
B&W Environmental’s GMAB flue gas cleaning and flue gas condensation technologies are applicable for a wide range of applications, including waste-to-energy, co-incineration and hazardous waste incineration plants. The company’s SPIG dry cooling technologies are a sustainable and environmentally conscious cooling solution, eliminating water discharge and protecting the environment. B&W’s Diamond Power boiler cleaning systems are ideally suited for renewable and waste-to-energy applications.
The Lostock waste-to-energy plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in late 2025.
