When we designed and built the world’s first commercially operated supercritical boiler, we were instrumental in the advancement of power generation efficiency. Improvements in efficiency continue to help our customers and the power industry use less fuel and produce lower emissions per kilowatt-hour of electrical output.  Along with B&W Beijing, our joint venture partner in China, we have since provided nearly 150 supercritical boilers for more than 99,000 megawatts of generating capacity. This experience includes the largest supercritical boilers in the world.  And – In the United States, we designed and constructed the first ultra-supercritical boiler, representing the most advanced steam cycle conditions commercially available today.  

Reliable power generation must be accomplished with the lowest allowable impact on the environment.  

That’s why we integrate environmental technologies into new and existing operations to control and monitor a range of emissions including nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, fine particulate, mercury, acid gases and other hazardous air pollutants.  

Along with European subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Vølund – we are a leading supplier of equipment and technologies that turn solid waste and biomass into thermal energy.   Over the years, B&W Vølund technologies have been incorporated into more than 500 waste-to-energy and biomass production lines in over 30 countries.  Our collaborative experience includes boilers and environmental systems, as well as operations and maintenance services for some of the largest waste-to-energy facilities in the world.


Power producers and industries alike must modify, improve and maintain their equipment for the long-term sustainability and profitability of operations.

Responding to our customers’ needs, B&W provides a comprehensive mix of equipment aftermarket products and services to support peak efficiency, reliability and availability. Beyond dedicated project and engineering teams – B&W’s extensive network of worldwide regional service centers, field service engineers and technical support personnel provide customized services and solutions.  With facilities located in more than 20 countries and an extensive global network of industry professionals, B&W supports our customers, and their equipment and operations.  Our pro-active approach includes programs, upgrades, parts and services focused on overall plant optimization to extend the life and improve the performance of vital assets.

Industrial Environmental

The industrial sector has diverse environmental and process requirements – and together with B&W MEGTEC, we have the technical expertise and experience to understand each unique application.  We provide design, engineering and manufacturing solutions to industries including chemical, pharmaceutical, energy storage, packaging, automotive and numerous others.

In addition to offering specialized industrial process systems, coating lines and equipment – B&W MEGTEC supports the increased emphasis on the environmental impact of various industrial processes.  Our environmental technologies help control volatile organic compounds, particulate, acid gases and other hazardous air pollutants, and some offer the potential for material reuse and savings.

Committed to Integrity

A reputation for honesty and integrity is an important asset.  The ethical conduct of our business and compliance with both the letter and the spirit of the laws and regulations that govern our operations build trust and respect with customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders and the communities where we operate.  When we set our standards high and live by what we preach, we improve the way we manage our own affairs, develop a reputation for integrity, and create an atmosphere of confidence between ourselves and those we do business with.  This is essential for our success.

B&W has developed standards of business conduct, which are described in our corporate policies and procedures, our Code of Business Conduct, the B&W Anti-Corruption / Anti-Bribery Compliance Manual, and our Supplier Code of Conduct.

The elements of the B&W Standards are important.  Our Corporate policies govern our operations and provide guidelines for the everyday conduct of business.  Our Code of Business Conduct describes in detail the ethical standards that govern all of our business operations.

Our compliance program provides a system to prevent and detect violations of the Code, our policies, and the laws and regulations that govern our business.

In today’s world, the line between the right choice and the wrong choice is not always clearly drawn.  That is why we believe it is valuable to set and maintain high ethical standards outlined by our Code of Business Conduct and Corporate policies.
