Valmet to upgrade two boilers at Mondi Group's mills in Sweden and Bulgaria
Valmet Corporation's press release on January 31, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. EET
Valmet will upgrade a recovery boiler at Mondi Group's Dynäs paper mill in Sweden and a power boiler at Mondi's Stambolijski mill in Bulgaria.
The purpose of the upgrades is to increase the capacity and availability of the boilers. Both boiler rebuilds are planned to be ready in the fall of 2014. The order is included in Valmet's first quarter 2014 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
"Mondi has been very active to develop their mills, and we, at Valmet, are very happy that Mondi has selected us for these important rebuilds. Upgrades are an area that is becoming more and more important for the industry in Europe as it relatively quickly increases production in existing plants," says Markus Bolhàr-Nordenkampf, Director Central and Eastern Europe, Valmet.
The scope and selection of solutions in a Valmet boiler upgrade depend on the needs and technology at the mill or in the boiler plant. An upgrade normally provides increased capacity and improved boiler performance. It can also increase the service life of the boiler by as much as 10-15 years, depending on the circumstances.
