International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order for a new HERB recovery boiler including advanced digitalization solutions to be installed at Moorim P&P’s pulp and paper mill in Ulsan, South Korea.

The delivery will increase the economic and environmental sustainability of the mill’s operations.

The contract signed with power plant supplier SGC eTEC E&C includes the engineering and main equipment supply for the boiler, digitalization solutions (ANDRITZ autonomous recovery boiler solutions) for maximum use of the boiler’s potential, and an ash treatment system.

Replacing two existing boiler units, the new HERB boiler will enable more efficient chemical recovery from the black liquor at lower emissions. Together with a new steam turbine, it will also significantly increase the mill’s renewable energy production. Thus, the delivery will make mill operations more self-sufficient, economical and sustainable. HERB recovery boilers are part of ANDRITZ’s broad portfolio of sustainable products that the company keeps advancing and expanding.

This order is a result of a long-lasting cooperation – ANDRITZ has provided process upgrades to Moorim P&P’s boilers for several years. “Our collaboration with ANDRITZ has already brought valuable continuous improvements to our Ulsan mill,” says Kim Sangwoo, Executive Director, Moorim P&P.

“This order is taking our relationship with Moorim P&P to the next level. We at ANDRITZ are grateful for the trust placed in our team and our technology,” said Henrik Wikstedt, Vice President, Recovery Boilers at ANDRITZ.
