ANDRITZ to supply equipment for SCAʼs Östrand pulp mill, Sweden

(PresseBox) (Graz, ) International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from SCA to supply production technologies and equipment for the extension of SCAʼs Östrand pulp mill in Timrå, Sweden. Start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2018. The order is expected to enter into force in the next few weeks.

The scope of supply, with a high manufacturing portion in Sweden, includes wood yard equipment, a pulp dryer with innovative, energy-saving technologies that substantially reduce the mill’s operating costs, a major upgrade of the white liquor plant, and extension of the recovery boiler, which was supplied by ANDRITZ in 2006.

The mill expansion is one of the largest industrial investments in Sweden and the largest ever in northern Sweden. SCA Östrand will double its annual production capacity from 430,000 to 900,000 tons and become the largest mill in the world for softwood kraft pulp.
