Toshiba Wins Major Order for Retrofit
of Ottumwa Thermal Power Plant in the U.S.

9 Aug, 2012

TOKYO-Toshiba Corporation (Tokyo: 6502) today announced that its United States subsidiary in the thermal power generation business, Toshiba International Corporation (TIC), has won a major retrofit order from U.S.-based Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. for the supply and installation of components for a steam turbine renewal and the winding of a generator stator coil. All key equipment will be supplied by Toshiba Corporation. TIC, as prime contractor, will start installation and winding work in September 2014 and the order will be completed by the end of 2014.
 
The retrofitting project will improve the output of the steam turbine by around 14%*1. TIC won the order on the strength of the high efficiency and eco-friendliness of Toshiba's technologies.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency established guidelines on emissions of airborne toxins from power plants, including mercury, in December last year following regulation of CO2, a move that is spurring demand for retrofitting and the scrap-and-build of older, inefficient coal-fired thermal power plants. 
 
Toshiba and TIC have installed over 90 steam turbines and generators in the U.S. and Canada and have been No. 1*2 in the U.S. market for nine consecutive years. The company is also active and expanding its presence in the plant service and maintenance sector; in April this year, it integrated into its organization REGENCO, a leading service provider in the US and previously a 100% TIC-owned subsidiary.

Going forward, Toshiba and TIC will strengthen Toshiba Group's presence in the U.S. thermal power business by supplying highly efficient and reliable equipment and expanding the scope of service support.
