Baton Rouge, La., June 19, 2012 — The Shaw Group Inc. won a contract by Portland General Electric to install emissions reduction equipment at Boardman Station, a 585-MW coal-fired power plant in northeastern Oregon.

Shaw will engineer, procure and construct a dry sorbent injection system and balance of plant equipment to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions from the plant.

Shaw is a leading provider of air quality control systems, including wet and dry flue gas desulfurization, nitrogen oxides and mercury removal, and particulate emissions control systems. Shaw has performed emissions retrofits on more than 40,000 MW of generation within the past 10 years.

The undisclosed value of the contract will be included in Shaw's Power segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.
