GRAZ, Austria and HELSINKI , May 9, 2011 (press release) – International technology Group ANDRITZ has received another order from Holmen AB’s subsidiary, Iggesund Paperboard Ltd., to deliver a wood-based biomass receiving and handling system for Iggesund’s paperboard mill Workington in Cumbria, UK. The start-up is scheduled for April 2013.

The order comprises the supply, installation, and start-up of the equipment (capacity: 1,000 m³/h) for receiving and storing biomass, as well as conveying it to the ANDRITZ biomass boiler.  This includes a horizontally fed chipping line for logs with an HHQ-Chipper, and a horizontally fed crushing line for wood waste.
