Foster Wheeler Ltd. announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract for a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) by UTE IBERESE-SOMAGUE -- a business alliance formed between Iberese and the constructor, Somague.

The boiler will be integrated in a cogeneration plant that REPSOL is constructing at the SINES Refinery in Portugal.

Foster Wheeler will design, supply and erect the HRSG, and will also provide start-up supervision for the HRSG, which will be coupled to a Siemens SGT-800 combustion turbine, with a total installed ISO rating of 47 MWe (gross megawatt electric). The HRSG will produce high and low-pressure steam for the refinery process. Commercial operation of the HRSG is scheduled for the second quarter of 2010.

Foster Wheeler Ltd. is a global engineering and construction contractor and power equipment supplier delivering technically advanced, reliable facilities and equipment.
