Mar. 29, 2018 - Valmet will supply a multifuel power boiler and auxiliary process equipment to Kipas Holding’s greenfield paper mill in Söke, Turkey.

The boiler plant will provide steam for a paper machine currently under construction and additionally produce electricity, which the paper maker says will be able to support a possible second paper machine. The start-up of the boiler plant is scheduled for March 2020.

The agreement was signed with Kipas Holding’s subsidiary Maren Maras A.S. who is responsible for building and running the boiler plant.

“We chose Valmet to supply the boiler based on our earlier good cooperation and experience with Valmet’s state-of-the-art technology. The previous projects that we have carried out together have been successful,” said Alaaddin Yalçinözü, General Manager of Kipas Kagit.

Valmet’s delivery includes a CYMIC circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler for co-firing paper and water treatment sludge, plastic rejects, and coal. The boiler plant will have a steam production capacity of 260 tons per hour (114 bar, 542 degrees C). The delivery also includes flue gas cleaning equipment and a Valmet DNA automation system.

“Valmet’s flexible boiler technology is ideal for the combustion of all the fuels which the greenfield power plant will utilize. Our flue gas cleaning will efficiently reduce emissions,” said Kai Janhunen, Vice President, Energy Business Unit, Valmet.
