Marsulex awarded contract by Minnkota Power for design, supply and installation of flue gas desulfurization system

    TORONTO, March 28 /CNW/ - Marsulex Inc. (TSX: MLX) announced today that
Marsulex Environmental Technologies ("MET") has been awarded a contract by
Minnkota Power Cooperative, Inc. ("Minnkota") to design, supply and install a
wet flue gas desulfurization ("FGD") system and lime preparation system at its
Milton R. Young Station near Center, North Dakota. MET will supply technology,
engineering and FGD equipment for Unit 1, rated at 250 megawatts, and will
also design, supply and erect the lime storage, handling and preparation
system. Burns & McDonnell will serve as Minnkota's architect engineer for the
    Engineering will commence immediately. Start-up of the FGD system is
scheduled for April 2011.
    Marsulex President and Chief Executive Officer, Laurie Tugman, said the
win confirms MET's success with the U.S. FGD market. "MET's previous contract
from the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) to provide FGD systems for its
Fayette Power Project marked the beginning of MET's resurgence in the U.S.
market. The contract value and projected revenues of the Minnkota project are
comparable to those of the LCRA project, which is currently under execution.
With a renewed view in the industry that fossil fuels, such as coal and
lignite, are viable long-term sources of energy in the U.S., we have expanded
our capabilities to both execute these projects and pursue additional
opportunities as power generators add capacity or upgrade systems to improve
environmental performance."
    MET has one of the largest installed bases of wet FGD systems in the
world. In addition to its two latest projects in North America, MET continues
to have ongoing success in China where it has won numerous contracts to supply
engineering, technology and equipment for wet FGD systems.
