ZURN AWARDED $45 MILLION DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT FOR 103 MEGAWATT COMBINED-CYCLE POWER PLANT

 Erie, Pa., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Zurn Industries, Inc. (NYSE: ZRN) a leading designer, constructor and manufacturer of systems and equipment for power generation and water control, and Lynx golf equipment, announced today that the Company has received full notice to proceed with design and construction of a 103 Megawatt gas-fired, combined-cycle cogeneration plant to be built in Bartow, Fla., for Orange Cogeneration Limited Partnership.
 Zurn will provide a turnkey plant for the project being developed by CSW Energy, Inc., Dallas, and ARK Energy, Inc., Laguna Hills, Calif. The plant will use two Zurn heat recovery steam generators and two dry, low emission GE LM 6000 gas turbines. Construction will begin immediately with completion planned for mid-1995. Steam from the new plant will be sold to Orange Co., Inc.; electricity will be sold to Florida Power Corp. and Tampa Electric Company.
 The new project brings the company's total experience in combined-cycle and wood-fired power generation to 1,950 megawatts with an estimated value in excess of $1.5 billion.
 As noted in the Dec. 2 Wall Street Journal, wood is gaining recognition as a clean burning, efficient fuel from both power generators and environmental interests. Zurn is widely recognized as the leading designer and builder of wood burning power plants in North America, with over 450 megawatts and $.5 billion of generating capacity in place or under construction.
