Babcock & Wilcox’s B&W Environmental segment received a contract for approximately $5 million to supply a Spig S.p.A. cooling system for a petrochemical facility in the Middle East.

The cooling tower will be used to provide cooling for propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene production equipment. The equipment is expected to help the plant reduce its environmental impact by conserving water and reducing liquid discharge. According to B&W, benefits of the Spig cooling tower include lower water consumption, reduced plume formation and decreased noise emissions.
