Andritz to Supply Mondi Mills with Energy Efficiency Equipment

Andritz will deliver a high energy recovery boiler to Mondi SCP, Ruzomberok, Slovakia.

March 14, 2013 - Andritz said that it has received orders to supply a High Energy Recovery Boiler (HERB) and further environmental technologies for Mondi mills in Slovakia, Sweden, and the Czech Republic. The orders are part of Mondi's program to increase energy efficiency and environmental protection.

For Mondi SCP, Ruzomberok, Slovakia, Andritz will deliver a High Energy Recovery Boiler. In terms of its power-to-heat ratio, the new boiler will be one of the most efficient recovery boilers in the world, Andritz said.

The new boiler will replace an existing boiler, increase the mill's electricity production significantly, provide conditions for operation with a minimized amount of fossil fuels and will also enable an increase of pulp production, Andritz added.

The delivery also includes an evaporation plant retrofit. The evaporator will represent the latest technology including 7-effect heat economy, enhanced internal condensate purification, and 85% black liquor concentration.

Start-up of the boiler and the rebuilt evaporation plant is scheduled for the end of 2014, Andritz said.

At Mondi's Dynas mill in Vaja, Sweden, two existing lime kilns will be replaced by a new Andritz lime kiln. Based on its LimeFlash technology, operating costs will be reduced due to lower fuel consumption, Andritz said.

Start-up is planned for the fourth quarter of 2013.

For Mondi Steti, Czech Republic, Andritz will build a packaging paper machine (PM7) to produce a various amount of bleached kraft grades. PM7 will start up in the latter part of 2014.

In addition, the mill's PM5 will receive an upgrade of the dryer section until October 2013.
