ICT Poland has placed an order for two heat recovery chains from ANDRITZ for the PM12 and PM14 tissue machines for its mill in Kostrzyn in Western Poland. The startup of the heat recovery chains has been scheduled for 2022.
The heat recovery chains of ANDRITZ Novimpianti include a PrimeDry YES Yankee Ecosteam system that produces high-pressure steam by utilising exhaust air from the Yankee hood. The generated steam is utilised directly as motive steam for the Yankee, which lessens the energy costs and carbon emissions.
