SWEDEN (News release) -- Andritz has received an order from Iggesund Paperboard AB, a member of the Holmen Group, to supply a new evaporation plant and rebuild an existing evaporation plant for the pulp mill in Iggesund.
Start-up of the new plant is scheduled for the second quarter of 2019 and of the rebuild for the fourth quarter of 2019.
The new 7-effect high dry solids evaporation plant will have a capacity of 350 t/h evaporated water. It will replace an old Andritz evaporation line from the 1970's and significantly enhance energy efficiency at the Iggesund mill. The state-of-the-art technology of the evaporation plant will improve the cleanliness of the condensates produced, which are reused in other processes in the pulp mill.
The existing evaporation plant will be rebuilt and upgraded to 220 t/h with modern Andritz lamella technology in effects 1 and 2 in order to meet and exceed the plant's original design data.
