New cogen plant in Spain

The Spanish subsidiary of Foster Wheeler Ltd. has been awarded a contract for a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) through Sener Ingenieria y Sistemas, S.A. for Petronor.

The boiler will be used in a cogeneration plant that Repsol-YPF and Petronor are constructing at the Petronor Refineria de Somorrostro in Bilbao, Spain. Repsol-YPF owns 85% of the Petronor Refinery.

Foster Wheeler will design, supply and erect the HRSG, and will also provide start-up supervision for the unit, which will be coupled to a 42 MWe GE gas turbine.
The HRSG will produce medium- and low-pressure steam for the refinery process.

Commercial operation of the HRSG is scheduled for the second quarter of 2009.

The terms of the contract were not disclosed.
