Utility Awards $12.7 M Contract to Fuel Tech
A major Midwestern utility has awarded Fuel Tech, Inc., of Warrenville, Ill., a $12.7 million order, including turnkey installation of multiple low NOx burners and an over-fire air system for a single coal-fired unit.
Equipment deliveries are scheduled to begin during the third quarter of 2010, with project completion occurring during the fourth quarter of 2010.

This rule requires state and federal agencies to establish long-term strategies and goals for improving visibility in national parks and wilderness areas."
