Graz, 12 December 2005.  International technology group Andritz was selected to supply a new recovery boiler to SCA Packaging Obbola AB in Sweden.  The value of the order is approximately 60 MEUR.

Following SCA’s stated long-term strategy to reduce energy costs and to improve the self-sufficiency of energy supply, SCA decided to purchase the high-efficiency recovery boiler from Andritz.  The technology concept and features of the recovery boiler to be delivered by Andritz will meet SCA’s targets to further reduce emissions and to maximize electricity production.

The recovery boiler with the high-temperature/high-pressure design concept was established with the successful start-up of the recovery boiler at UPM- Kymmene’s Wisaforest mill, as well as with the Andritz delivery to SCA Östrand mill signed in 2004.  The Obbola recovery boiler will have a capacity of 1,000 tds/d.  The energy-efficiency and heat recovery of the recovery boiler will be high.

The delivery will be on an EPC basis including the recovery boiler main equipment, boiler building, electrostatic precipitators, piping, insulation, instrumentation, electrification, erection and start-up. The recovery boiler is scheduled to start-up in October 2007. The recovery boiler will be mainly manufactured in Finland.
