Project Joint Venture Of B&W Subsidiary Awarded $110 Million Contract To Replace Equipment At Iowa Power Plant

The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE:BWC) announced today that a joint venture between a unit of its subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG) and architectural, engineering and construction firm Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. has been awarded a $110 million contract to replace auxiliary equipment at Interstate Power and Light Company’s (IPL) Ottumwa Generating Station power plant in Ottumwa, Iowa.

The scope of the project includes turbine rotor replacement, boiler pressure parts replacement, and balance of plant equipment, as well as construction services. The boiler’s pressure parts will be designed and supplied by B&W PGG.

“We’ve been working closely with Burns & McDonnell to deliver outstanding service to our customer on this important EPC project,” said B&W PGG President and Chief Operating Officer J. Randall Data. “We appreciate the confidence IPL has shown in again selecting our team for work at the Ottumwa plant.”

B&W announced in 2012 that the joint venture was awarded a contract to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) the plant’s environmental control systems. The auxiliary equipment replacement will be performed concurrently with the plant’s previously planned environmental upgrades. Material delivery for this portion of the project is scheduled for July 2014.
