Valmet will deliver a recovery boiler and ash leaching plant to ITC's Bhadrachalam pulp mill in India. The boiler, which will replace three existing boilers, has a capacity of 2,700 tDS/day and is scheduled for start-up in late 2021.

The boiler includes high steam parameters, flue gas heat recovery, combustion air preheating, feed water preheating and vent gas heat recovery. This enables 20 percent higher steam production compared to conventional recovery boilers.

According to Valmet, the boiler is significantly larger than the boilers previously delivered to India and will enable the mill to increase its energy production.
