International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Rottneros Bruk AB to upgrade the CTMP pulp drying line at its Rottneros mill, Sweden. After the modernization, the Flash Dryer’s capacity will be increased by more than 50% while at the same time specific heat consumption will be reduced. Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2016.
ANDRITZ will deliver a customized upgrade solution including a new drying stage as well as new cyclones, including complete mechanical erection. The newly designed cyclones will meet highest environmental standards, thus minimizing emissions.
“The target of this investment is to increase the production capacity and at the same time reduce the use of energy in our CTMP Flash Dryer. We’ve been having a long-lasting and very good cooperation with ANDRITZ for many years now, and this has been a strong reason to choose ANDRITZ as a supplier in this project”, says Nils Hauri, Production Manager at Rottneros mill.
Rottneros AB operates two pulp mills in Sweden with a total production capacity of almost 350,000 tons. The modernization will enable the company to raise its output at the Rottneros mill substantially.
