Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Mondi Group has contracted Valmet, Finland, to upgrade a recovery boiler at its Dynäs paper mill in Sweden and a power boiler at its 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 this year. The value of the order was not 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," said Markus Bolhàr-Nordenkampf, director Central and Eastern Europe, Valmet.

The scope and selection of solutions in a boiler upgrade, according to Valmet, 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.
