Mondi Świecie to Install New High Energy Recovery Boiler

Mondi Świecie, Poland, has ordered from Andritz, Austria, a new High Energy Recovery Boiler (HERB) to replace the existing recovery boiler (supplied by Andritz in the 1980s) at the Świecie mill. The new boiler is scheduled for startup at the beginning of 2016.

HERB is one of the industry’s highest power-to-heat ratios and operates at higher pressure and temperature than conventional boilers, thus maximizing power generation. The boiler, also designed to minimize emissions, has a capacity of 2,300 total dry solids per day.

Mondi Świecie is one of the major packaging paper producers for the European corrugated board industries. During the past two years, Mondi has ordered three Andritz recovery boilers, for Frantschach, Austria, and Ru┼żomberok, Slovakia, in addition to Świecie, as part of the company’s program for energy optimization and environmental protection.
