February 11, 2022 (press release) –

International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from ICT Poland to deliver two heat recovery chains for the PM12 and PM14 tissue machines at its mill in Kostrzyn.

Start-up is scheduled for 2022.

The heat recovery chains will be supplied by ANDRITZ Novimpianti and include a PrimeDry YES Yankee Ecosteam system that produces high-pressure steam by utilizing exhaust air from the Yankee hood. This steam is used directly as motive steam for the Yankee, thus reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions.

With a capacity of about 620,000 t/a, ICT numbers among Europe’s leading tissue producers. ICT and ANDRITZ partnered for the first time in 2001 when ANDRITZ successfully installed the PM 11 tissue production line at ICT Poland in Kostrzyn. This was followed by several conjoint projects in Europe.

This order once again confirms the expertise of ANDRITZ Novimpianti in sustainable drying technology. Last year, the company installed a PrimeDry YES for the first time at ICT in Piano di Coreglia, Italy.
