CAMBRIDGE, Ont.: Aecon Group Inc.’s Innovative Steam Technologies (IST) subsidiary has been awarded one domestic and three international contracts totaling $40 million to supply steam generators, oil recovery and exhaust system products.

Under the terms of the first contract, the Cambridge, Ont. manufacturer of steam-power generators and related technologies will design and fabricate six replacement 50 mm btu/hr steam-assisted gravity drainage convective sections for an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operation run by Petroleos de Venezuela SA in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela.  Delivery is set for this month.

The second contract involves designing and supplying a Once-Through Steam Generator (OTSG) unit for Termica Colleferro Spa in Colleferro, Italy. The OTSG will be installed in a new high-yield cogeneration power plant to recover waste heat from a new gas turbine, and provide steam for a steam turbine generator as well as for industrial processes in the local area. Delivery is set for February 2011.

Another three OTSG units will go to the Chugach Electric Association and its partner Anchorage Municipal Light & Power, in Anchorage, Alaska, where they’ll be used to capture waste heat from three gas turbines at the Southcentral Power Project. Recovered steam will be converted to generate extra power.

IST said the units, to be delivered in June 2011, will be equipped with emissions-controlling equipment designed to minimize the power plant’s impact on the environment.

The fourth order is for two silencing exhaust systems designed for the 400-megawatt York Energy Centre in King, Ont. The company said the systems, for delivery in March 2011, will meet very stringent sound and assembly requirements at the natural gas-fired electricity generation site.
