Foster Wheeler AG, based in Zug, Switzerland, says a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract to design, supply and provide site advisory services for two sets of solar steam generators (preheaters, kettle-type evaporators, superheaters and reheaters) as well as low-pressure and high-pressure feedwater heaters.
The contract was awarded by the project's engineering, procurement and construction contractor, a joint venture created by Spanish companies Sener and Cobra. The equipment will be integrated into the Valle 1 & Valle 2 Solar Thermal Power Plants, located in San Jose del Valle (Cadiz, Spain).
The plants, which are owned by Torresol Energy – a company created by Sener and Abu Dhabi-based Masdar (40%) – will have an installed power capacity of 50 MW each. Foster Wheeler's equipment delivery is scheduled for the first quarter of 2011.
