Foster Wheeler Awarded Contract For Design And Supply Of Three Package Steam Generating Systems
Foster Wheeler AG announced that a subsidiary of its Global Power Group has been awarded a contract by North West Redwater (NWR) Partnership for the design and supply of three model AG-5325 package steam generating systems located at NWR’s Sturgeon Refinery, Sturgeon County, Alberta.

Foster Wheeler has received a full notice to proceed (FNTP) on this contract. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed and the contract value for the FNTP will be included in the company’s fourth-quarter 2013 bookings. Delivery of the new steam generating systems is scheduled to begin in the first-quarter of 2015.

The NWR Partnership is a joint venture between North West Upgrading Inc. and Canadian Natural Resources Limited, with each company owning 50% stake in the Partnership. The Partnership targets to build and operate a world-class bitumen refinery in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, which will add significant value to the region’s bitumen resources in a responsible and sustainable manner.

About North West Redwater Partnership

North West Redwater Partnership was formed in 2010 as a joint partnership between NWU and a wholly owned subsidiary of CNRL to build the world's first bitumen refinery which will combine the already proven processes of gasification technology with an integrated carbon capture and storage solution. The Sturgeon Refinery, which will be located 45 km north-east of Edmonton, is also the first bitumen refinery to sell its CO2 for the purposes of enhanced oil recovery. NWR could expand capacity to convert 150,000 barrels of bitumen directly to fuels and other high value, low sulphur products required in the Alberta and world markets in three equal phases of which Phase 1 has now been sanctioned. The process is also optimized to minimize the environmental footprint of the facility and make the bitumen upgrading/refining process sustainable in Alberta.
