LONDON (CNI)--Anglo-Norwegian engineering and construction group Kvaerner announced Friday that it has won a Euro50m ($43m) contract to supply a sodium chlorate plant plus boilers, air pollution control systems for a new pulp mill being built for Celulosa Arauco y Constitucion in Valdivia, southern Chile.
The new mill, which will produce 600 000 tonne/year of bleached craft market softwood and hardwood pulps, is scheduled for commissioning in 2004.
Kvaerner’s pulp and paper business will supply the sodium chlorate plant, together with an air pollution control system, comprising an incinerator for the destruction of strong non-condensable gases, and a vent gas scrubber.
It will also provide the new recovery boiler, which will burn black liquor from the pulping process, and a 134 MWth, bubbling fluidised bed power boiler which will use bark as fuel.
Plans to divest Kvaerner’s paper and pulp division were abandoned in December. Kvaerner had previously deemed the division to be non-core.
