Mill to receive evaporation plant and boiler upgrade

Metso will supply an evaporation plant and an upgrade to a recovery boiler in Billerud's Skärblacka mill in Sweden.


Metso will supply a new evaporation plant and an upgrade of an existing recovery boiler for Billerud Skärblacka AB’s Skärblacka mill outside Norrköping in Sweden. The goal is to strengthen the mill for the future by improving environmental performance and energy efficiency as well as to enable future company expansion. 

Metso’s delivery will allow for a substantial increase in production capacity in the future. In addition, the mill’s energy efficiency will be improved leading to a significant reduction in consumption of fossil oil and external biofuels. 

The project will go through two project phases. The first is to install the new evaporation plant and the second to upgrade the recovery boiler. The project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2013.
