International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from ITC Paperboards and Specialty Papers Division (ITC-PSPD) to supply a new evaporation plant for its Bhadrachalam unit located in Telangana, India.

ANDRITZ will supply a new 7-effect evaporation plant on EPC basis with a capacity of 390 t/h that will concentrate kraft black liquor to a final dry solids content of 75%. The plant will be the largest in India and have the capability to improve the quality of condensate from the existing mill so that it can be re-used effectively in the mill and also to reduce water consumption.

ANDRITZ’s lamella technology in the evaporators ensures the desired steam economy at all times, reduces energy consumption by circulation pumps, as well as providing higher black liquor concentration and stability, thus leading to increased and stabilized power production in the recovery boiler. The technology also delivers optimized vapor condensate quality that contributes towards a reduction in the mill’s operating costs. In addition, fewer and shorter washing cycles will enhance overall availability.

This investment is part of ITC-PSPD’s recovery plant modernization project to further strengthen its market position in the paperboard and specialty paper segment.

ITC-PSPD is one of the largest manufacturers of packaging and graphic boards in Southern Asia. The company’s Bhadrachalam unit produces value-added folding boxboard.

The P-RC APMP system features the following technological highlights:

  • MSD Impressafiner for wood chip maceration to enable optimum chemical impregnation
  • High-consistency (HC) refining stage with two parallel ANDRITZ S2070 single-disc refiners for superior fiber properties and highest production flexibility
  • Low-consistency (LC) refining stage with six ANDRITZ TwinFlo refiners to develop optimal pulp strength and lowest shive content

Ying Guangdong, Vice General Manager and Chief Engineer at Sun Paper, explains: “The excellent performance by the five P-RC APMP systems operating in our Yanzhou mill convinced us to trust once more in ANDRITZ. Their impregnation technology, in particular, with the MSD Impressafiner will enable us to produce excellent mechanical pulp quality again, which will be an essential precondition for our production of printing, writing, and culture paper here in Beihai.” 

Guangxi Sun Paper was established in July 2019 to build an integrated pulp and paper mill in Beihai. The mill will be constructed in two phases over approximately five years. When fully completed, it will have a total annual pulp and paper capacity of 3.5 million tons.

The P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) system features a capacity of 450 admt/d and comprises the entire equipment from chip washing to pulp storage.

The stock preparation system handles NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp) and LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) fibers in two lines, and the approach flow system is designed for three layers. Broke handling and fiber recovery systems round off the stock preparation and approach flow systems.

The board machine features three Fourdrinier plies – one containing a hybrid former with a wire width of 4,750 mm – and will operate at a design speed of 600 m/min. In the press section, there is an extended nip press, one shoe press and one smoothing press. The pre-drying section is followed by a film press and the post-drying section, two calenders (one hard nip, one soft nip) and a coating section with three roll coaters, including air drying equipment, as well as a pope reel and a rewinder. A roll transport system and sheet cutter complete the production line.

Apart from a new PrimeControl and multi-motor drive system for the entire line, ANDRITZ will extend the motor control center and start up the existing QCS system. The ANDRITZ PrimeControl includes extended features for process automation throughout the paper mill and minimizes the number of subsystems and associated interfaces. Thanks to the advanced multi-motor drive system, energy and power consumption will be reduced.

Alexandr Kolyada of JSC Management Company says: “For us, the completion of our board production line is a real milestone! We are happy that ANDRITZ is supporting us with its experience and know-how.”

International technology group ANDRITZ and Metsä Fibre, part of the Metsä Group, have signed a preliminary agreement under which ANDRITZ will supply two fully autonomous logyard cranes to the planned Metsä Fibre bioproduct mill in Kemi, Finland. Metsä Fibre will make the EUR 1.5 billion investment decision for the new mill in autumn 2020 at the earliest, and the new mill will take approximately two and a half years to build.

Included in the EPC delivery are two 2 x 25-ton cranes on a 540 m long runway with storage capacity of approximately 120,000 m3. The cranes will handle approximately 7,600,000 m3 wood/year shipped on trucks and trains as well as handling log storage and feeding the wood to the pulping process.

These ANDRITZ cranes will be the first autonomously operated logyard cranes worldwide.They feature the latest in artificial intelligence, thus optimizing log handling, minimizing wood losses and securing environmentally friendly and cost-effective operation compared with traditional log-handling solutions. This agreement is a significant breakthrough for logyard cranes in Europe. ANDRITZ has over 50 successful references for crane installations in North America.

“We valued the low noise – considering the planned mill location – the energy efficiency and all-electric drives with no fossil fuels consumed, and also the advantages created by applying advanced robotics and artificial intelligence to achieve autonomous operation,” says Ismo Nousiainen, CEO of Metsä Fibre Ltd.

This order once again confirms the excellent business relationship between ANDRITZ and Metsä Fibre, the latest reference being the innovative technologies and process equipment delivery to Metsä Fibre’s Äänekoski bioproduct mill, which was started up successfully in 2017.

Metsä Fibre is a leading producer of biochemicals, bioenergy and other bioproducts. Planning of the new bioproduct mill is based on a high level of environmental efficiency as well as efficiency in terms of energy and materials used. The mill will not use any fossil fuels at all, and its electricity self-sufficiency rate will be 250%. If built, the Kemi bioproduct mill will produce 1.5 million tons of softwood and hardwood pulp a year as well as many other bioproducts.
