Services: Commissioning, Project management, Documentation, As-built status and data recording, Basic-engineering and pre-engineering, Detail engineering, Installation supervision

Industry Branch/Type of Plant: Power plants, Industrial systems

Client: Albbruck paper plant

Project Size: approx. EUR 1 m


Within the Myllykoski Group, MD Albbruck is the location for the production and development of offset papers. With about 630 employees and three paper machines, it is the largest site within Myllykoski Continental. Each year, about 300,000 tons of woody, coated printing paper is produced. A dedicated power plant is used to generate electricity, water, and process steam.

Project description

INP International Projects was contracted to equip Boiler 6 of the steam power plant with the Siemens PCS7 controls system. Boiler 6 was built in 1981 by Sulzer, and has six burners and three coal pulverizers. The burners run on anthracite, heavy heating oil, and light heating oil. The boiler also has a grate stoker furnace, where tree bark and effluent sludge are burned. The maximum output of Boiler 6 is about 120 t/h at 150 bar. The steam generated in the boiler systems is used to drive various turbines, or the turbine bypass reducer stations, depending on the mode of operation. It is finally reduced to 1.5 bar. INP International Projects provides planning, engineering, and integration of existing systems into the new controls systems, and recommissioning of the system.
