International technology group Andritz has received an order from Russia’s Ilim Group to supply a new recovery boiler to its Ust-Ilimsk mill in Russia. The Andritz HERB recovery boiler will have a black liquor combustion capacity of 1,950 tds/d, with start-up planned in the second half of 2021.
The order is part of $1 billion “Big Ust-Ilimsk Project” that targets increasing pulp output at the mill by 130,000 tons per year and a finished product capacity increase from 550,000 to 1.5 million tons per year.
The HERB recovery boiler offers high efficiency and availability as well as a modern combustion air system, among other things. It is designed to handle all non-condensable odorous gases generated in the new pulp line in any foreseen operating situation.
