The Babcock & Wilcox Beijing Company (BWBC) will build two 1,000MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired boilers for a large power plant project in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province, China.

BWBC is a joint venture between Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation (B&W PGG) and Beijing Jingcheng Machinery Electric Holding Company.

The two Spiral Wound Universal Pressure (SWUP) boilers will be the first such boilers in operation in China, using one of B&W's advanced and efficient coal-fired boiler designs for increased energy output and lower emissions in comparison to subcritical boilers.

Work on the contract for the Zhoushan project is underway at BWBC's facility in Beijing and it expects to deliver the components in mid-2012.
