Comment Print
Helsinki, Finland, 30 July 2009 -- Metso will supply a power boiler to S.A Industrias Celulosa Aragonesa’s (SAICA) new waste-to-energy power plant at Zaragoza in Spain. Start-up for the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2011. The value of this order is approximately EUR 50 million. The order is included in Energy and Environmental Technology’s third quarter orders received.

The power boiler will be a 150 MW (thermal capacity) multifuel boiler using Metso’s circulating fluidized bed technology and high-performance flue gas cleaning system, giving the new plant very high environmental performance. With this investment SAICA will minimize its landfill operations and instead recycle the paper mill waste into electrical power.

SAICA is Spain´s largest paper producer with a production capacity of 2 million tons/year of corrugated paper. SAICA is also the largest paper recycler in Spain, using recovered paper for papermaking. At present, the company recycles 2.2 million tons of paper per year, which otherwise would go to landfill.

Metso is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services for mining, construction, power generation, automation, recycling and the pulp and paper industries. We have about 28,000 employees in more than 50 countries. www.metso.com
