:: FFE Minerals Equipment Ships to Coleson Cove

FFE Minerals has completed shipment of equipment to NB Power's Coleson Cove Generating Station Refurbishment Project in Saint John, New Brunswick. FFE Minerals was awarded the project by Babcock & Wilcox Company in mid-2002. Erection is scheduled to begin this year and be completed in the second quarter of 2004. Plant start-up/commissioning is estimated for the third quarter of 2004.

FFE Minerals scope of supply includes two (2) 3.4 meter diameter x 7.0 meter long FT Series ball mills and two Technequip hydrocyclone Cyclo-Pacs. The 1,400 HP grinding mills will process 22.5 MTPH of limestone to be used in the project's flue gas desulphurization (FGD) plant. FGD plants are used to reduce SO2 emissions.

The Coleson Cove Project represents FFE Minerals second contract to supply equipment to NB Power. In the early 1990's FFE Minerals supplied limestone grinding and classifying equipment for a two-line FGD circuit at their Dalhousie Generating Station in northern New Brunswick.

The Coleson Cove Project comes in the midst of a very active period in the FGD industry. In addition to the Coleson Cove Project, FFE Minerals has recently supplied over ten grinding lines for FGD applications in North America, Europe and Asia.
