B&W wins Bellefonte double SG order

20 October 2010

Babcock & Wilcox Canada, Ltd. has won a contract from Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to design and manufacture two steam generators for the Bellefonte Unit 1 Plant as a part of the Bellefonte completion project.

The steam generators are scheduled to be delivered to the Bellefonte site in 2015, pending a decision by the TVA Board to complete construction of Unit 1. Weighing approximately 500 tons each, the “once-through” steam generators are designed to produce superheated steam to be transported to the turbines for electricity generation.

“B&W has a long history at Bellefonte, and we are very pleased that TVA selected our steam generator technology to complement the B&W-designed reactor at the plant,” said Chris Mowry, B&W Nuclear Energy, Inc. president.

B&W Canada, located in Cambridge, Ontario, has designed and manufactured more than 300 nuclear steam generators for customers worldwide. It is a subsidiary of US firm Babcock & Wilcox company.
