Fuel-Tech NV based in the US has announced four orders for NOxOUT projects totaling approximately US$2m. Two of the orders are for municipal solid waste incinerator facilities in Spain, while a third is for high-tech injectors for a cement kiln NOx reduction application in Korea. The last order is for the completion of a NOxOUT system on a large coal-fired utility boiler that was put on hold one year ago. The release of a second unit from this utility, which was also postponed at the same time, is expected late this year or early 2005.
Steven C Argabright, President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with the additional orders received by our Italian subsidiary as this shows the acceptance of our technologies in the Western European market. The order for the completion of the postponed NOxOUT system, along with the indication of future orders from the same utility, is also positive news as utility and industrial customers continue their efforts to finalise their compliance plans for 2005 and beyond."
