B&W to clean up 544 MW coal plant in Colorado

The SDA systems are designed to control sulfur dioxide emissions from the single-unit, 544 MW plant

Charlotte, N.C., February 3, 2012 — The Babcock & Wilcox Co. won a contract to design and supply two spray dry absorber units and associated equipment for Xcel Energy's coal-fired Pawnee Generating Station in Brush, Colo.

The SDA systems are designed to control sulfur dioxide emissions from the single-unit, 544 MW plant. The contract scope also calls for B&W PGG to supply atomizers, a reagent preparation system, structural steel and commissioning of the project.

Material delivery is scheduled for 2013, with tie-in of the SDA units expected in the fall of 2014.
