April 19, 2012
– International technology Group ANDRITZ has been selected by the Mondi Group to supply a 1,200 tds/d recovery boiler for the Mondi Frantschach mill in St. Gertraud, Austria. The boiler is scheduled to start up in the second half of 2013.
ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER will deliver the entire boiler plant with auxiliaries such as instrumentation and electrification for the boiler. The scope of supply also includes process control for the boiler island, including the safety system and integration to the existing mill’s distributed network.
The modern ANDRITZ recovery boiler design will replace two old boilers and will incorporate ANDRITZ’s Vertical Air combustion system to ensure the lowest possible emissions. Steam values for the new boiler are an operating pressure of 87.5 bars(a) and temperature of 480º C. Space has been allocated in the layout for a chloride and potassium removal system to be added some time in the future. The boiler’s design also enables the addition of a flue gas cooler and/or a flue gas scrubber in the future.
