Valmet to supply a multifuel boiler to Kipas Holding's new paper mill in Turkey

Valmet will supply a multifuel power boiler and auxiliary process equipment to Kipas Holding's greenfield paper mill in Söke, Aydin, Turkey. The boiler plant will provide steam for a paper machine currently under construction and additionally produce electricity. Its steam production capacity will be sufficient for a possible second paper machine. The start-up of the boiler plant is scheduled for March 2020.

The order is included in Valmet's first quarter orders received in 2018. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

The agreement was signed with Kipas Holding's subsidiary Maren Maras A.S. who is responsible for building and running the boiler plant. In 2013, Valmet supplied a containerboard machine to Kipas Holding's board mill in southeastern Turkey.

"We chose Valmet to supply the boiler based on our earlier good cooperation and experience with Valmet's state-of-the-art technology. The previous projects that we have carried out together have been successful," says Alaaddin Yalçinözü, General Manager of Kipas Kagit.

"Valmet's flexible boiler technology is ideal for the combustion of all the fuels which the greenfield power plant will utilize. Our flue gas cleaning will efficiently reduce emissions," says Kai Janhunen, Vice President, Energy Business Unit, Valmet.
