The ANDRITZ scope of supply includes a new DD-washer for brown stock washing and delignification systems to change from single-stage oxygen delignification to two-stage operation. Start-up is scheduled for autumn 2017.
This project is the main part of the mill's modernization program to reduce effluent emissions and improve both cost and energy efficiency. The rebuild will have a positive impact on the quality and uniformity of the pulp produced and will also substantially reduce the mill's chemical consumption.
Stora Enso's Veitsiluoto mill in Kemi is an integrated production facility that manufactures not only pulp but also office papers, coated mechanical papers and sawn products. It is the world's northernmost paper producer and ranks number four among the largest paper and paperboard mills in Europe.
