Valmet has signed a contract with CIECH Soda Polska S.A. for the supply of a flue gas desulphurization and denitrification installation to Soda Polska's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Inowroclaw, Poland. The investment will extend the lifetime of the CHP plant as well as decrease the plant's sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions.
The order is included in Valmet's third quarter 2015 orders received. The value or the order is around EUR 40 million.
"We selected Valmet as supplier because their solution was overall the most competitive. The Valmet wet limestone flue gas desulphurization (FGD) solution provides the lowest operational cost. We were also pleased that Valmet managed to optimize the duration and timing of the boiler outages required during construction, thereby minimizing the production losses of the chemical plant," says Jacek Gajdka, Director of Investments and Member of the Supervisory Board of CIECH Soda Polska.
"Valmet has in the past few years executed significant boiler rebuilds and new boiler delivery projects in Poland. This flue gas cleaning order further strengthens our position in the Polish market for energy solutions. It also demonstrates the competiveness of our environmental solutions for this size coal fired boilers. We are delighted that we received the trust of CIECH Soda Polska to carry out this significant project at Inowroclaw," says Roman Szerszen, General Manager for Valmet in Poland.
