B&W awarded contract to replace boiler at Ontario steel mill


Charlotte, N.C. – Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. announced today that its subsidiary, The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W), has been awarded a contract to supply and install a replacement boiler for ArcelorMittal Dofasco’s Hamilton, Ontario, steel manufacturing plant.

B&W will supply a TSSG boiler capable of providing 450,000 pounds-per-hour of steam for generating 20 megawatts of electricity. The efficient and cost-effective modularized boiler will operate on a combination of coke oven and blast furnace gases.

“The B&W TSSG boiler was designed for an array of industrial and power applications and is well-suited to produce the high-pressure steam necessary for our customer’s power needs,” said Mark Low, senior vice president of B&W’s Power business segment. “We thank ArcelorMittal for this opportunity.”

B&W’s full scope of supply also includes burners, furnace, steam drum, economizer, ducting, fans and other components. B&W is scheduled to deliver the boiler in late 2017 and complete installation by August 2018.
