In terms of its power-to-heat ratio, the new boiler will be the most efficient recovery boiler in the world. Start-up of the boiler will be in the second quarter of 2012.
The new boiler will increase Iggesund's electricity production from 210 to 520 GWh/a. The investment is part of an energy efficiency program to make the Iggesund mill energy self-sufficient. The investment will also provide the conditions for the mill to operate without using any fossil fuels.
Andritz Pulp & Paper's delivery also includes process and building instrumentation and electrification for the boiler, process control systems for the boiler island, as well as process simulator and process control solutions.
