Foster Wheeler's licensee of Global Power Group, BHI, has received two contracts to provide heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) in Asia.

Under the contract awarded by Mitsubishi, BHI will design and supply four HRSGs for the 240MW Bangpoo cogeneration power plant in Thailand.

Located on approximately 17-Rai (approximately seven acres) of land within the BangPoo Industrial Estate in Samut Prakarn Province, the power plant is expected to be on-line by the third quarter of 2016.

Under the contract awarded by Daewoo Engineering & Construction (Daewoo E&C), BHI will design and supply two HRSGs for the Pocheon 940MW combined-cycle power plant IPP project in South Korea.

The Pocheon power plant is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2017.

BHI president Woo Jong-Ihn said: "BHI is pleased to be making an important contribution by supplying environmentally friendly and cost-efficient HRSGs.

"HRSGs are designed for improved reliability, ease of maintenance and thermal efficiency."

"In particular, our HRSGs operating behind Siemens and Mitsubishi J-gas turbines, respectively, will help secure reliable power generation in Thailand and South Korea."

According to Foster Wheeler, HRSGs are designed for improved reliability, ease of maintenance and thermal efficiency.

The generators recover waste energy from processed gas, internal combustion engines, gas-turbine exhaust and other hot gas sources within power plants and cogeneration facilities.

In June, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has received a contract from Daewoo E&C for the supply of core components for the Pocheon power plant.

Under the deal, MHPS will supply two M501J gas turbines, one steam turbine and three generators for the power plant to be constructed in Pocheon city, about 45km northwest of Seoul.
