Foster Wheeler HRSG for refinery cogeneration plant in Spain

A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group has been awarded a contract to design, supply and erect a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) by the Spanish company, REPSOL PETROLEO, for integration into a cogeneration plant being built at the REPSOL Cartagena Refinery in Murcia, Spain.

The HRSG will be coupled with a GE PG-6581 gas turbine and recover heat from the gas discharge stream, producing high-pressure and medium-pressure steam for use in refinery processes, and electricity generation at the Cartagena facility. The unit will be equipped with a bypass stack and diverter, as well as post-firing and fresh air capability, for continuous operation even after a combustion turbine trip.

Commercial operation of the plant is scheduled for the first quarter of 2012.
