1992 MARKET PROJECTIONS RELEASED FOR STEAM GENERATING AND FUEL BURNING EQUIPMENT SALES

 1992 MARKET PROJECTIONS RELEASED FOR STEAM GENERATING
 AND FUEL BURNING EQUIPMENT SALES
 ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Members of the American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) have released their annual projections for 1992 of steam generating and fuel burning equipment sales. According to H. Kerner Smith, the association's president, "The results reflect pessimism caused by the inability of the administration and Congress to come to agreement on the National Energy Plan, and the enactment of new Clean Air Act rules for existing power stations."
 The Utility Boiler Group sees a sales increase in 1992, with a forecast of 4750 megawatts (MW) -- combined domestic and export orders -- as compared to 1991's expected sales level of 2500 MW. Domestic sales accounted for the majority of the megawattage sold in 1991. Export sales are expected to contribute 74 percent of the 1992 market.
 The forecast for industrial units for 1992 is 32.9 million pounds of steam per hour (PPH), an increase over expected 1991 sales of 30.2 million PPH, but 2 percent lower than 1991's sales.
 The cogeneration market for 1991 is being projected at 2521 megawatts. Forecasters are looking at a 32 percent decrease in 1992, with orders projected to be 1709 MW, about 10 percent less than 1990's.
 Forecasters project a combined 1.1 million PPH for purchases of municipal solid waste units -- including both mass burn and refuse derived fuel (RDF). This compares to 300,000 PPH sales in 1991.
 Watertube fluid bed combustion units are forecast at 5.1 million PPH (combined pressurized and atmospheric), which is 19 percent higher than the 1991 projected level of sales of 4.3 million PPH. Atmospheric units remain the major contributor to both.
 ABMA forecasters are projecting 1992 sales of 23.6 MPPH total commercial/industrial steam equivalency -- down 10 percent from the 1991 sales of 26.1 MPPH steam (which was 2 percent above 1990's actual sales).
 The Burner Group 1992 market forecast of 17,720 units is slightly above 1991's total projected sales of 17,207 units. The increase comes primarily in the below 25 million Btu/hr. burner category.
 The forecast for stokers for 1992 is 21 units -- over a doubling of 1991's expected sales of 10 units.
 The American Boiler Manufacturers Association, founded in 1888, is a voluntary, non-profit corporation with headquarters in Arlington. The only national association representing commercial, industrial and utility boiler manufacturers, as well as fuel burning system manufacturers, the ABMA serves to provide a common working forum for the industry to improve technology, to establish code and standards guidelines, to develop safety programs, to assure product and service quality, and to conduct research.
