International technology Group Andritz has received an order to supply a High Energy Recovery Boiler (HERB) to Mondi Świecie, Poland. The new Andritz boiler, which is scheduled for start-up at the beginning of 2016, will replace the existing recovery boiler (supplied by Andritz in the 1980s) at the Świecie mill.
Andritz Pulp & Paper’s Herb offers one of the industry’s highest power-to-heat ratios and operates at higher pressure and temperature than conventional boilers, thus maximizing power generation. The boiler, also designed to minimize emissions, has a capacity of 2,300 tds/d.
Mondi Świecie is one of the major packaging paper producers for the European corrugated board industries. This order confirms Andritz’s position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of advanced boiler technologies and its long-term good business relationship with Mondi – the international packaging and paper group. During the past two years, Mondi has ordered three Andritz recovery boilers (also for Frantschach, Austria, and Ružomberok, Slovakia, in addition to Świecie) as part of the company’s program for energy optimization and environmental protection.
