ANDRITZ has received the order from Marubeni, Tokyo, Japan, to supply an EcoFluid fluidized bed boiler with flue gas cleaning system for a waste-to-energy power plant at SCG Packaging’s Ban Pong paper mill, located in Ratchaburi, Thailand.
The equipment and technologies supplied by ANDRITZ will be used to generate electricity from thermal utilization of residue occurring in production operations using a recycled paper furnish. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018.
The fluidized bed boiler will be Thailand’s first of its kind that operates with 100% waste fuel and also the first boiler at SCG Paper Energy Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of SCG Packaging.
The scope of supply comprises the engineering work, equipment delivery, and supervision services for erection work and start-up of the fluidized bed boiler, including a flue gas cleaning system and auxiliary equipment.
ANDRITZ EcoFluid boilers are based on Bubbling Fluidized Bed (BFB) technology for producing steam and electricity from solid fuels such as renewable biomass and alternate fuels such as sludge, Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) and residues. EcoFluid boilers employ proven, yet modern combustion technology to efficiently produce power while keeping emissions within environmentally safe limits.
