February 6, 2009

Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG), a major operating unit of The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W), has been awarded a contract to refurbish two B&W Radiant Tower-type boilers at the Suralaya Steam Power Plant on Java Island, Indonesia.

B&W PGG will redesign and supply superheater and reheater surface, low NOx combustion systems, pulverizer performance enhancements, and other boiler upgrade equipment.

Suralaya's Units 1 and 2, currently 400 MW each, were originally supplied by B&W in the early 1980s. The upgrades will increase the capacity of each unit to 440 MW.
