CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:BW) announced today that its subsidiary, The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W), has been awarded a contract for more than $50 million to design and supply boiler equipment for an existing North American power plant.

“Maintaining a reliable and efficient North American power fleet is a key goal for B&W’s Power business,” said Mark Low, Senior Vice President of B&W’s Power segment. “Coal-fired plants continue to provide a substantial portion of the power delivered to the electrical grid, and it’s critical that these plants be maintained to operate at peak efficiency.”

Work is underway on this project and material delivery is scheduled to be completed in mid-2020.
