Foster Wheeler has a rich history dating back to 1891 with the Wheeler Condenser and Engineering Company located in Carteret, New Jersey, USA.
In the 1900’s, Foster Wheeler had several successful business lines including fired heaters, refinery distilling towers, steam condensers and superheaters and economizers for steam generators. During the 1950’s, Foster Wheeler developed its membrane wall panel construction and acquired the MB pulverizer technology which later evolved into the current MBF pulverizer. Foster Wheeler sold its first subcritical once through steam generator in 1964 to the Morgan Creek Station. The unit capacities increased in the United States eclipsing 1000 MW in capacity for a single Unit. In 1993, Foster Wheeler commissioned the first coal fired SCR systems in the United States. After 2000, Foster Wheeler recognized that having strategic license partners in key markets would promote the use of Foster Wheeler technology.
After more than 100 years of history, Foster Wheeler Corporation was acquired in whole, by Amec PLC of the United Kingdom, creating Amec Foster Wheeler. In December of 2017, the pulverized coal steam generator business was acquired by BHI Co., Ltd. BHI Co., Ltd created a new subsidiary for pulverized coal in the United States and the company, BHI FW Corporation was formed.
BHI FW Corporation was formed in December of 2017 when BHI Co., Ltd of South Korea purchased the pulverized coal fired steam generator business from Amec Foster Wheeler, PLC. BHI FW is based in Hampton, NJ. The staff of BHI FW comprises the Engineering and Business Managers and key engineering staff from the Amec Foster Wheeler PC steam generator business. This team performed the detailed design of all major PC steam generator projects.
