Valmet has confirmed it will supply a multifuel power boiler and auxiliary process equipment to Kipaş Kağit Sanayi Isletmeleri A.Ş.’s paper mill in Kahramanmaraş, Turkey. The new boiler will improve the reliability of the paper mill’s steam and electricity supply. Additionally, its steam production capacity will be sufficient for the mill’s future paper machine PM 4. The boiler plant startup is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
“We are happy with Valmet’s way of working and the excellent cooperation in our earlier boiler plant project. We find Valmet’s technology reliable and appreciate its environmental friendliness,” says Sinem Öksüz Dedebayraktar, Board Member, Kipaş Kağit Sanayi Isletmeleri A.Ş.
“This is a repeat order from Kipaş Holding, as we have supplied an identical plant earlier to their greenfield paper mill in Söke, Turkey. We value the customer’s trust in us highly,” says Kai Janhunen, Vice President, Energy Business Unit, Valmet.
Kipaş Kağit Sanayi Isletmeleri A.Ş. started as a joint venture of Kipaş Holding in 2011 and produces high-quality containerboard paper from OCC.
