ZUG, SWITZERLAND, Feb. 11, 2014 -- Harbin Electric International Co. Ltd. (HEI) awarded a contract to a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler AG's (Nasdaq: FWLT) Global Power Group for the design and supply of two circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) boiler islands and flue gas scrubbers for HIDRO-GEN Energy Import, Export, Distribution and Trading Inc. -- a subsidiary of Kolin Group of Companies.

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed on this contract, and HEI is acting as EPC contractor for HIDRO-GEN's power project to be built near the town of Soma in Turkey. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed, and the contract value will be included in the company's bookings for the first-quarter of 2014. Commercial operation of the new steam generators is scheduled for the beginning of 2017.

Foster Wheeler will design and supply two 255 MWe (gross megawatt electric) steam generators and auxiliary equipment for the boiler islands, flue gas cleaning systems with Foster Wheeler CFB scrubbers as well as technical advisory services during erection and commissioning. The CFB boilers will be designed to burn local lignite.

"This is the largest CFB project yet to be awarded in Turkey, and Foster Wheeler is looking to a bright future within the Turkish power market," said Tomas Harju-Jeanty, CEO of Foster Wheeler Energia OY Group. "Due to the significant economic benefit of using lignite for power generation, we expect that Foster Wheeler CFB technology will be the technology of choice for future power projects in the country."
