Baton Rouge, La., June 19, 2012 — The Shaw Group Inc. won a contract by Portland General Electric to install emissions reduction equipment at Boardman Station, a 585-MW coal-fired power plant in northeastern Oregon.

Shaw will engineer, procure and construct a dry sorbent injection system and balance of plant equipment to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from the plant.
