Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) (NYSE: BW) announced today that its B&W Environmental segment has been awarded a contract for more than $12 million by Lotte Engineering & Construction Co. to supply hybrid cooling systems for Korea District Heating Corporation’s (KDHC) power generation and district heating projects in Daegu and Cheongju, South Korea.
B&W Environmental will design and supply two SPIGTM hybrid cooling towers that utilize advanced wet and dry cooling technologies to efficiently cool the plants while reducing water consumption, minimizing plume formation and decreasing noise emissions.
“B&W Environmental is seeing significant business growth in East Asia, as demand for hybrid cooling technology grows,” said Babcock & Wilcox Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Jimmy Morgan. “Our SPIG hybrid cooling systems are flexible and reliable, and particularly well-suited for locations where reduced plume formation is important, such as in residential areas.”
Since opening its Asia-Pacific headquarters in 2020, B&W has added significant resources and personnel in the region, while focusing on key growth areas for its business, such as plant upgrades, advanced emissions control and cooling technologies, parts, equipment and other services to customers in the renewable, environmental, power and industrial markets.
