Comment Print
Graz, Austria, 29 April 2008 -- International technology Group Andritz will supply steam boilers based on fluidized bed combustion technology using biomass as fuel for mill power plants in Spain and Portugal. The value of the orders is more than EUR 80 million.

Andritz will supply a high pressure steam boiler plant to Grupo Empresarial ENCE, S.A., Spain, for their pulp mill in Huelva, Andalusia, Spain. The 170 MW boiler will use energy cultivates and forest residues as fuels. Start-up of the plant is scheduled for the end of 2009. When completed, the plant will be one of the largest green electricity biomass power plants in Spain and will generate 50 MWe of green electricity supplied to the grid.

Andritz will deliver steam boilers to Portucel–Empresa Produtora de Pasta e Papel, S.A., Portugal, for two power plants to be built at the Cacia and Setúbal mills in Portugal. Electric power output of the plants will be 15 MWe each. The boilers are based on fluidized bed technology and will use mainly eucalyptus and pine as fuel (50 MW/unit). Start-up of both plants is scheduled for the end of 2009.

Biomass-based electricity production plays an increasingly important role in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. With the state-of-the-art Andritz steam boilers, customers are able to generate “green energy” in an efficient and environmentally friendly way.

The Andritz product portfolio for green electricity production also includes gasifiers and recovery boilers. These are mainly used by the pulp and paper industry, but increasingly also by the power generating industry
