Valmet will supply a multifuel power boiler and auxiliary process equipment to Kipas Holding's greenfield paper mill in Turkey. The equipment will provide steam for a paper machine currently under construction and will also produce electricity. Startup is scheduled for March 2020.
The delivery includes a circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler for co-firing paper and water treatment sludge, plastic rejects and coal. The boiler plant will have a steam production capacity of 260 tons per hour. Valmet will also supply flue-gas cleaning equipment, which is expected to reduce emissions, and a DNA automation system.
The agreement was signed with Kipas Holding's subsidiary Maren Maras A.S., which is responsible for building and running the boiler plant.
