 ZURN RECEIVES $60 MILLION CONTRACT
 TO BUILD WOOD WASTE AND TIRE BURNING POWER GENERATION PLANT
 ERIE, Pa., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Zurn Industries, Inc. (NYSE: ZRN), a leading designer and manufacturer of power systems and equipment, and water control products for environmental applications has received a contract to engineer and construct a 40 Mw power generation plant for Ridge Generating Station LP, a partnership of a subsidiary of Wheelabrator Environmental Systems, Inc. and Decker Energy International, Inc.
 Located in Polk County, Fla., the new facility will burn a fuel mixture of wood waste with up to 20 percent pre-shredded tire chips, with supplemental firing of methane gas collected from an adjacent landfill. In addition to designing and building the plant, Zurn will furnish a two drum boiler and traveling grate system designed to accommodate the waste fuel mix specified for the plant. Electricity from the project will be sold to Florida Power Corp. Work on the project will begin immediately, with completion scheduled for spring of 1994. In recent years, Zurn/NEPCO has built wood-fired power plants in Maine and California for other Wheelabrator companies.
