Power plant to swap coal boilers for natural gas-fired ones

OCI will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the project, which is expected to be completed in early 2015

Overland Contracting Inc. (OCI), a unit of Black & Veatch, was selected by Celanese Corp. to replace its coal-fired boilers with natural gas-fired boilers at a plant in Virginia.

OCI will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the project, which is expected to be completed in early 2015.

“This project will allow Celanese to improve its plant operations while using clean-burning, efficient natural gas as an energy source,” said Mark Prenni, Managing director, Overland Contracting Inc. “OCI was selected based on our significant experience managing client needs and ability to deliver results on complex industrial projects like this one.”
