Combined Contract Value Approximately $US 150 million
TORONTO, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - Marsulex Inc. (TSX: MLX) announced today that Marsulex Environmental Technologies (MET) has been awarded two new contracts for flue gas desulphurization (FGD) systems with an aggregate value of approximately $US 150 million.
Both projects will commence immediately and will be executed over the next several years.
Under the first contract, which is the larger of the two, MET will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for a large North American power producer. The contract calls for FGD upgrades for several coal fired power plants. The total capacity of these units is more than 1,200 megawatts.
The second contract is for technology, engineering, procurement of critical components and field advisory services for the retrofit of an FGD system for Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy, S.A., a leading chemical producer in Poland. The system, which will utilize MET's proprietary ammonium sulphate FGD technology, will treat flue gas from multiple coal-fired boiler units with equivalent capacity of approximately 300 megawatts.
Marsulex President and Chief Executive Officer, Laurie Tugman, said, "These new contracts are significant wins for Marsulex. They fit nicely into our schedule as we near completion of our major contract for the Lower Colorado River Authority and demonstrate the continuing strength of our business and technology. Upon completion of the project in Poland, Marsulex will have deployed five commercially proven AS-FGD installations in North America, Asia and Europe."
