Customer case:

High-efficient and sustainable energy production at Hamburger Hungaria`s power plant

Sep 13, 2017

Hamburger Hungaria's new power plant produces electricity and steam for Hamburger Hungaria's containerboard mill that operates two paper machines. It has replaced the existing gas-fired boiler plant that produced steam only. With Valmet CFB Boiler (formerly CYMIC), utilizing circulating fluidized bed technology, Hamburger Hungaria Power has now capability to use a wide range of solid fuels, biomass, coal as well as recycled containerboard rejects and sludge, in energy production instead of natural gas.
