Comment Print
Graz, Austria, 08 January 2008 -- International Technology Group Andritz received an order from Mondi Syktyvkar pulp and paper mill in Komi Republic, Russia, to supply a new recovery boiler, evaporation plant, and woodyard. The order also includes the rebuild of the existing fiber line. The typical order value for such a project is EUR 100-130 million; order completion is scheduled for 2010.

The state-of-the-art 3560 tds/day recovery boiler, equipped with odorous gas incineration systems, maximizes electrical energy generation in the plant, thus ensuring cost-effective power generation in the mill and helping to protect the environment.

The supply also includes an evaporation plant and a condensate stripping plant. The six-effect evaporation plant has a water evaporation capacity of 550 tons/h; the final product solids content is about 75%. All condensates are separated for further use within the pulp mill. The condensate stripping plant purifies the methanol-rich condensates from the new and the existing evaporators. The collected methanol is treated in a new methanol plant to produce liquid methanol fuel.

The woodyard, which has a capacity equivalent to a pulp production of 875,000 tons/year, consists of two debarking lines with the highest capacity in the world. The chippers are the biggest in the world, with 3.87 m disc diameter and 18 knives. The chipper is designed to produce homogenous, high chip quality with extremely high capacity of the lines.

The fiber line delivery includes an upgrade of hardwood and softwood lines. The hardwood fiber line comprises a brownstock washing upgrade with a pressure diffuser and two-stage DD washer; the capacity will increase to 1500 tons/day. For the softwood fiber line, Andritz will convert the existing continuous digester to Downflow Lo-Solids® cooking. The upgrade also comprises a TurboFeed® chip feeding system; the capacity will increase to 1000 tons/day.
