UK: Advanced Cooling Solutions B&W Wins 8 Million Dollar Contract for Air-Cooled Condenser in UK
Babcock & Wilcox’s B&W Environmental business has secured the mega contract for designing, supplying and installing a Spig air-cooled condenser for a waste-to-energy plant in the UK. The cooling system will be responsible for increasing efficiency and reducing emissions.
Ohio/USA – Babcock & Wilcox has recently announced that its B&W Environmental segment will design, supply and install a Spig air-cooled condenser for a waste-to-energy plant in the United Kingdom. The contract is valued at more than 8 million dollars.
The Spig cooling system features advanced technology for increased efficiency and reduced emissions and is ideally suited for renewable energy applications.
“The continued expansion of the circular economy and demand for waste recycling and sustainable treatment in the U.K. is significant,” said Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer. “As we focus on growing B&W Environmental’s business in the U.K. and across Europe, we see substantial opportunities to provide advanced cooling solutions to customers in waste-to-energy, renewable energy and other markets.”
Spig Managing Director Alberto Galantini noted that cooling solutions can be tailored to customers’ needs.
“Spig cooling technologies, including high-efficiency air-cooled condensers, can be engineered for the unique demands of renewable energy applications, including waste-to-energy,” Galantini said. “We are excited to be a part of this key infrastructure project.”
Spig’s experience includes wet, dry and wet/dry hybrid cooling solutions as dictated by site-specific requirements. The company supplies mechanical and natural draft systems and designs for a wide range of project specifications such as high seismic loads, vibration control, corrosion, noise control, sub-freezing operation, and seawater use.
