ANDRITZ to supply the world’s largest wood pelleting plant to Russia
International technology Group ANDRITZ will supply all process equipment for a complete wood pelleting plant to the Russian pulp and paper producer Vyborgskaja Cellulosa in Vyborg.
The order value is approximately 40 MEUR, start-up of the plant is scheduled in the second half of 2010.
With a production capacity of approximately 900,000 t/a (corresponding to about 125 t/h), this wood pelleting plant will be the largest worldwide. ANDRITZ FEED & BIOFUEL will supply debarking lines, a chip handling system, belt dryers, as well as hammer and pellet mills.
With this investment, Vyborgskaja Cellulosa is entering the growing wood pelleting market, thus further diversifying its business activities.
This and the order recently received from RWE Innogy to supply a complete wood pelleting plant (the largest wood pelleting plant in North America, with a production capacity of approximately 750,000 t/a) confirm ANDRITZ FEED & BIOFUEL’s status as global market leader for wood pelleting plants.
