Order worth SEK 35 million for new bio boiler that will replace oil-based plant

Saxlund, a subsidiary of Opcon, the energy and environmental technology Group, has received an order for an advanced bioenergy plant at Skåpafors mill, introducing biomass as a fuel instead of oil and electricity. The customer is Rexcell Tissue and Airlaid AB, a subsidiary of Duni. The order is worth around SEK 35 million for Saxlund. Delivery is planned for 2009/2010.

The plant will have a joint combustion system which will produce 9 MW of process steam. This means that in addition to replacing oil and electricity as fuel with biomass, the system will enable waste from the mill to be burnt and energy extracted from it. When the plant is taken into operation Rexcell expects to cut carbon emissions significantly.

“This is the first plant of its kind that Saxlund is selling. One of the new features is that we are integrating the possibility for the customer to use the boiler to burn their own biological waste. This makes Rexcell and Duni groundbreakers and I am sure we will see many companies following after. This is a profitable investment with a short payback period. It’s good for the environment and reduces the customer’s climate impact considerably. They will also stop having the extra expense of landfill for their waste,” says Tomas Wendt, head of bioenergy plants at Saxlund.
