Metso has signed a contract with Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill in Novodinsk, Russia to deliver a biomass-fired BFB (bubbling fluidized bed) power boiler including main auxiliary equipment for boiler and site advisory services. Bark and sludge will be used as fuel in the new boiler which has a capacity of 60MWth. By replacing old coal boilers with new biomass boiler the Arkhangelsk mill will obtain an additional amount of own steam and electricity and can expect a fast return of investment by reducing electricity. Start-up of the biomass boiler is scheduled for the first quarter of 2014.
"We are very excited about this project, in which we help our customer to use their mill residuals to produce energy in an efficient and environmentally friendly way," says Kari Remes, General Manager Sales Capital Sales, Metso.
