March 29, 2018 - Valmet will supply a multifuel power boiler and auxiliary process equipment to Kipas Holding's greenfield paper mill in Söke, Aydin, Turkey. The boiler plant will provide steam for a paper machine currently under construction and additionally produce electricity. Its steam production capacity will be sufficient for a possible second paper machine.

The agreement was signed with Kipas Holding's subsidiary Maren Maras A.S. who is responsible for building and running the boiler plant.

"Valmet's flexible boiler technology is ideal for the combustion of all the fuels which the greenfield power plant will utilize. Our flue gas cleaning will efficiently reduce emissions," says Kai Janhunen, Vice President, Energy Business Unit, Valmet.

Valmet's delivery includes a CYMIC circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler for co-firing paper and water treatment sludge, plastic rejects, and coal. The boiler plant will have a steam production capacity of 260 tons per hour (114 bar, 542°C). The delivery also includes flue gas cleaning equipment and a Valmet DNA automation system.

The start-up of the boiler plant is scheduled for March 2020.
