AFRY received piping engineering order from SCA

SCA has awarded AFRY a piping engineering assignment for the Chemical Thermomechanical Pulp (CTMP) production project in Ortviken, Sweden. The assignment includes piping design of the CTMP processes, dewatering, drying and baling. The value of SCA's investment is SEK 1.45 billion and production is expected to start at the beginning of 2023.

The demand for CTMP by customers from packaging boards and hygiene product segments has increased during recent years. SCA has decided to invest in a new production plant for CTMP by rebuilding the existing Ortviken mill TMP plant and using the existing infrastructure. It includes a rebuilding of the TMP plant as well as the processes regarding chemical treatment, dewatering, drying and baling.

AFRY has now been assigned to complete the piping design of the CTMP processes, dewatering, drying and baling. The plant is expected to be ready for operation in early 2023 with an annual production of 300,000 tonnes of CTMP.

AFRY is a European leader in engineering, design, and advisory services with global reach.
