Foster Wheeler to acquire Siemens Environmental Systems and Services business

Siemens Environmental Systems and Services includes the former Wheelabrator Air Pollution Control Co based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the Advanced Burner Technology Co located in Branchburg, New Jersey.

The Siemens Environmental Systems and Services businesses design, engineer, retrofit and service a range of clean air technologies for power and industrial plants including wet and dry flue gas desulfurization (FGD) and particulate control (fabric filters and electrostatic precipitators), acid gas control, mercury control, NOx reduction and combustion optimization systems.

“This is a strategic acquisition which expands our capability to offer clean air products and services to our clients in both the power and industrial sectors,” said Gary Nedelka, CEO of Foster Wheeler’s Global Power Group. “It complements our existing portfolio of clean-air products and allows us to provide our clients with a full array of solutions to meet both tightening environmental regulations and the growing demand for energy on a global basis.”
