Foster Wheeler Receives Notice to Proceed for Major Power Plant Project in China.
The owner of the plant, Hebei Hanfeng Power Generating Co. Ltd, is a joint venture company that included HEPC, the operating power company; Hebei Construction and Investment Corp.; North China Power Co.; and Siemens Power Development Hanfeng GmbH, a power plant investment subsidiary of Siemens AG.
Foster Wheeler Energy Corp. is a consortium partner with the Siemens Power Generation Group for the supply of the main power block equipment, including turbine generator, boiler, instrumentation and controls, ash handling and other related components for each of the two units.
FWEC will supply the arch-fired boilers, the firing system including bunkers, coal feeders and pulverizers, coal burners with oil igniters, boiler and mill bay structures and enclosures, air/flue gas duct system including fans/air heaters, and electrostatic precipitators.
Because the plant is to burn a pulverized blend of very-low-volatile anthracite with low-volatile "lean" coal, Foster Wheeler's recognized leadership in the design and fabrication of boilers capable of burning anthracite efficiently was a critical factor in its selection for this project.
The plant will be located in Yijing, a town near Handan City in Hebei Province, about 420 km southwest of Beijing. The power generated at the facility will serve the growing industrial cities of Hebei Province.
