BillerudKorsnäs Frövi Mill The new HERB recovery boiler from ANDRITZ will replace the existing boiler from the 1960's at BillerudKorsnäs pulp mill in Frövi, Sweden.

April 26, 2021 - ANDRITZ has received an order from BillerudKorsnäs to supply a HERB recovery boiler for its mill in Frövi, Sweden. The new boiler will replace the existing recovery boiler that has been in operation in Frövi since 1969.

The ANDRITZ scope of supply includes a HERB recovery boiler designed for the current pulp production level, but also to support a future black liquor combustion capacity of 1,670 tds/d and with future steam parameters of 100 bar and 505°C to maximize power generation.

ANDRITZ will also supply a high-density concentrator solution to increase the black liquor concentration. This will improve operation and increase power generation by the HERB recovery boiler at Frövi mill even further.

"We are very proud that BillerudKorsnäs has placed its trust in the ANDRITZ team and our technical solutions," said Henrik Wikstedt, Vice President, Recovery Boilers, ANDRITZ. "Both the sales process and the collaboration between our teams were good right from the beginning. As a result, we have gathered an excellent understanding of BillerudKorsnäs' business drivers and targets. We are looking forward to this project and to extending our collaboration even further."

Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2023.
