Zug/Switzerland – Foster Wheeler is busy in Asia: Apart from contributing to Petron's refinery revamp in the Philpipines, the Swiss based company could score two further orders in Asia: Firstly, the engineering experts will provide a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator for a Chninese paper production. Further, a division of Foster Wheeler was selected to develop and build a new LNG receiving terminal in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The 50 MWe (gross megawatt electric) steam generator, scheduled for commercial operation by the end of 2013, comes as an order from Chinese Yuen Foong Yu Paper, Foster Wheeler states. It will be designed to burn coal blended with paper sludge while meeting applicable environmental regulatory requirements, speakers say. It is already the fourth CFB steam generator that the company provides for Yuen Foong Yu.

In India Foster Wheeler was selected to build an LNG terminal at Ennore for the country's national oil company Indian Oil for an undisclosed value. The scope of work includes basic design, front-end engineering design, and the preparation of capital and operating cost estimates for the new LNG import, storage and regasification terminal. The terminal, scheduled for completion in 2015-16, will have a processing capacity of five million tons of liquefied gas per day. Foster Wheeler’s scope also includes marine studies to enable IOCL to finalize the jetty location, utilities, and regasified LNG send-out facilities. The LNG terminal facilities are planned for completion by 2015-16.
