Valmet to deliver electrostatic precipitators to Nordic Paper's Bäckhammar mill in Sweden

ESPOO, Finland -- Valmet will deliver electrostatic precipitators (ESP) for the existing recovery boiler in Nordic Paper's Bäckhammar mill in Kristinehamn, Sweden. The take over is scheduled to be in the end of 2025.

The order is part of Nordic Paper's investments to further improve the sustainability performance and the competitiveness of the company's Bäckhammar mill, which manufactures unbleached kraft papers of different qualities, primarily for packaging purposes. Through the installation of new electrostatic precipitators, the emissions of dust into the air will be reduced by more than two-thirds.

The order is included in Valmet's orders received of the fourth quarter 2023. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

"We are delighted to be chosen as the key supplier for Nordic Paper's Bäckhammar mill. The delivery of new electrostatic precipitators strengthens our partnership with Nordic Paper in both scope and depth. It is a key milestone for both companies and demonstrates Valmet's state-of-the-art ESP technology that helps customers achieve near-zero emissions. This also supports our goal of improving our customers' performance with our extensive experience, process know-how and service expertise," says Jonas Gestranius, Product Sales Manager, Environmental Systems, Pulp and Energy business line, Valmet.
