Barberton, Ohio, September 9, 2010 – Babcock and Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. signed a contract to design, engineer, supply and construct a selective catalytic reduction system for Consumers Energy’s J.H. Campbell Generating Complex Unit 2, located near West Olive, Mich.
Under the terms of the contract, B&W PGG will supply and build an SCR system for the control of nitrogen oxides emissions and associated equipment and flues for the 360 MW Campbell Unit 2. Engineering for the project is already under way.

Killion. “We have the experience and the technical expertise to help our customers meet government-mandated emissions standards economically and efficiently.”
Construction of the supplied equipment has started and is slated for completion in the spring of 2013.
The J.H. Campbell Complex consists of three coal-fired electric generating units capable of producing up to 1,455 MW of electricity, enough to power a community of more than a million people.
