Babcock & Wilcox Close to Finishing Large Waste-to-Energy Plant

The Babcock & Wilcox Co. expects to start operations early 2015 at the first municipal waste to energy plant built in the United States since 1995. The company said that $600 million plant at the Palm Beach Renewable Energy Park in Florida is 85% complete and will be ready to begin test firing this winter. The 95-megawatt, waste incinerator will be paired with a 1980s era 65-megawatt waste plant already on the site. Together they will consume more than 1.7 million tons of landfill waste a year, producing enough electricity to power 85,000 homes. They will provide 200 jobs to the county. The new plant will be operated by Palm Beach Resource Recovery Corp. for the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County. The new plant will use advanced technologies that allow it to burn almost 99% of solid municipal waste.

Babcock & Wilcox Mulls Acquisitions

The Babcock & Wilcox Company (NYSE:BWC) is looking for acquisitions. Jim Ferland, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Babcock & Wilcox Company (NYSE:BWC) said, "We are looking to grow the Company via acquisition, when we think its appropriate to do so, and when we think that acquisition has a better return for our owners and our investors, than buying back our own stock. And at the same time, we bought back about $80 million worth of stock in the quarter. So we will continue to be opportunistic in the marketplace on buybacks, and we will continue to look for acquisition opportunities that are better than buybacks. I would like to do some combination of both as we move forward."

The Babcock & Wilcox Company Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend, Payable on September 10, 2014

The Babcock & Wilcox Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per common share. The dividend will be payable on September 10, 2014 to shareholders of record on August 20, 2014.
