Babcock & Wilcox announced on 5 December that it had been awarded a contract by FirstEnergy for the design, fabrication and delivery of two replacement steam generators for its Davis-Besse nuclear power plant in Ohio. The work will be performed by Babcock & Wilcox Canada Ltd in Cambridge, Ontario. Delivery of the steam generators is scheduled for 2013. The financial details of the contract were not disclosed. The announcement comes a week after Babcock & Wilcox announced that its commercial nuclear generation operations have been consolidated under Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Power Generation Group (B&W NPG). In August, Babcock & Wilcox won a contract from Bruce Power to engineer and manufacture eight Candu designed replacement steam generators for unit 3 of the Bruce A plant in Ontario.
