BHI will also provide pulverized coal (PC) boilers, circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boilers and oil and gas boilers for the project.

BHI president Woo Jong-Ihn said, "Based on the combination of Foster Wheeler technology and BHI design and production capabilities, BHI intends to continue its marketing activities in the combined cycle power plant market throughout the world."

"BHI will also provide pulverized coal boilers, circulating fluidised bed boilers and oil and gas boilers for the project."

The Rabigh II IPP combined-cycle power plant is located in western Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea, around 150km north of the port city of Jeddah.

Foster Wheeler Global Power Group executive vice-president David Parham said that Foster Wheeler HRSG have been designed to meet the performance, reliability and cost goals of customers.

"Together the list of Foster Wheeler/BHI reference units now includes more than 70 HRSGs for a total of over 7GW supplied globally, bringing the total Foster Wheeler experience on HRSGs to 425 units and over 28GW," Parham said.
