Global engineering and construction major Foster Wheeler has completed the purchase of Graf-Wulff GmbH, a German company that designs, manufactures and installs circulating dry ash flue gas scrubbing technology for all types of boilers in the power and industrial sectors.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Graf-Wulff supplies proprietary multi-pollutant scrubbing technology that is well suited for reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide, particulates, heavy metals, acid gases and other pollutants targeted by environmental regulations that are emerging in the US and Europe, the company said.
Graf-Wulff scrubber and related air quality technology has been supplied to and utilized in applications across Europe, North America and Asia.
The acquisition of Graf-Wulff establishes immediate and significant market presence for Foster Wheelers Global Power Group in scrubbers, fabric filters and related equipment for both new and existing utility power and industrial steam plants, said Gary Nedelka, CEO of Foster Wheelers Global Power Group.
With the addition of Graf-Wulffs technology to our portfolio of products and services, we can now offer our clients a full array of solutions to meet both tightening environmental regulations and the growing demand for energy, he added.
