Vogt Power International Inc., located in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.A., a subsidiary of Babcock Power Inc., announced that it was successful in its bid to supply Progress Energy Florida the heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) for the Bartow Repowering Project in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Vogt Power will design, engineer, manufacture and deliver four duct fired, three pressure level reheat, natural circulation HRSGs with selective catalytic reduction systems, to be installed behind Siemens SGT6-5000FD3 gas turbines. The contract is valued in excess of US$60 million.
