Refinery group Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron USA, Inc, has awarded a contract for the design and supply of two 20 MW shop-assembled steam generators to be located on-site at its Pascagoula, Mississippi refinery.
Advances in blade technology and specialised IT programmes have made the design of cost efficient steam turbines easier. They are now being used in the design of large combined cycle plants which have become increasingly popular in recent years.
China’s Sinopec Wuhan Company has awarded a contract to a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group for the design and supply of three circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generators for a proposed cogeneration plant for the 800,000 tonne/year ethylene manufacturing project in central China's Wuhan city.
Across the global electric power generation industry, there is a growing demand for economically viable power plants that enable owners and operators to optimize their return on investment and minimize their life cycle cost of electricity.
