RICHMOND, VA, Jan. 4, 2005 -- Infilco Degremont won a contract bid and negotiated by Parsons E&C, on behalf of Progress Energy, to design and supply a flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater treatment system for Progress Energy's Asheville Generating Station in Arden, N.C. The heart of the design approach for this cutting-edge facility is Degremont's ability to continually integrate its impressive array of field data, testing and R&D into a performance-driven system design.

"Our team's outstanding ability to prepare such a comprehensive and competitive design in a very short procurement and scheduled delivery period demonstrates the depth of their experience and attention to detail," said Marc Hauchecorne, CEO of Infilco Degremont. "The ability to competitively meet the exacting performance and stringent scheduling needs of Parsons E&C and Progress Energy was a key element in our selection of Degremont," added Jonathan Escott of Parsons E&C.

Infilco Degremont excels in FGD wastewater treatment, with more installations in the U.S. and the world than any other company. Its capability for removal of organics, suspended solids, and heavy metals -- combined with the recently issued EPA and state rulings for severe reductions in SO2 -- provides the electric utility industry a proven tool to meet stringent FGD wastewater effluent requirements resulting from these rulings.

The synergistic ability of Infilco Degremont's design approach to integrate with state-of-the-art scrubber technologies provides utility customers assurance that complex and varying treatment requirements can be achieved on a long-term basis. The Asheville project is expected to start up in late 2005.
