Per the agreement, B&W PGG will design and provide FM water tube package boilers. The components of the boilers are expected to be produced at West Point, Miss.-based facility of B&W PGG.

For power generation, the dual fuel boilers will utilize either oil or natural gas. Moreover, these boilers will substitute the coal-fired units that are currently being used in the plant.
