Stockholm, Sweden 11 July 2104 -- Doosan Skoda Power has been commissioned to supply a complete turbine installation consisting of a turbine, generator and other equipment. The turbine is a 60MW condensing turbine and it will be an important part of Södra's expansion of the Värö Pulp Mill. The new turbine safeguards the expanded mill's electricity generation and surplus electricity will be supplied to the national grid. This means Södra will be able to increase deliveries of ‘green electricity' which is replacing fossil fuels in the community.
"We chose Doosan Skoda to supply our new turbine because they made us a highly competitive offer. We've also been extremely satisfied with the turbine from Doosan Skoda that we started in 2007," explained Jonas Eriksson, Mill Manager at Södra Cell Värö.
Södra has already commissioned Sweco for construction design, NCC for groundworks, installation and construction work, Valmet for process equipment and Raumaster for storage and transportation equipment for wood chips and bark.
Doosan Skoda Power is a Czech company that sells equipment and services for all kinds of installations and specialises in steam turbines and heat exchangers it designs itself. The company belongs to Korean industrial group Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction.
