Charlotte, N.C., October 14, 2010 — The Babcock and Wilcox Co. has been notified of a contract award from Tennessee Valley Authority to design and manufacture two steam generators for the Bellefonte Unit 1 Plant as a part of the Bellefonte completion project.

The steam generators will be designed and manufactured by B&W Canada and are scheduled to be delivered to the Bellefonte site in 2015, pending a decision by the TVA board to complete construction of Unit 1.

Each weighing about 500 tons, the “once-through” steam generators are designed to produce superheated steam to be transported to the turbines for electricity generation.

B&W Canada, located in Cambridge, Ontario, has designed and manufactured more than 300 nuclear steam generators for customers worldwide.

Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., The Babcock and Wilcox Co. is a clean energy technology and services provider, primarily for the nuclear, fossil and renewable power markets, as well as a premier advanced technology and mission critical defense contractor. B&W has locations worldwide and employs about 13,000 people, in addition to about 10,000 joint venture employees.
