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.
