ANDRITZ Oy, member of international technology Group ANDRITZ, has received an order from Södra Cell AB to supply a new evaporation plant for the pulp mill in Mörrum. Start-up is scheduled for fourth quarter of 2017.
The new 7-effect high dry solids evaporation plant will replace existing evaporation lines and significantly enhance energy efficiency at the Mörrum mill. Based on state-of-the-art technology provided by ANDRITZ, the evaporation plant also produces a considerable amount of district heat to be supplied to the Karlshamn municipality. The plant will also produce very clean condensates, all of which can be reused in other processes of the pulp mill.
