SFW will design, supply and erect the project, which includes modifications to the lower furnace, new heat shift system, biomass feeding system, bottom ash extraction system, and emissions control system, as well as dismantling and commissioning. The modernization will allow the plant to completely shift from coal to multiple sustainable and renewable fuels. The new emissions control system include bag filters and selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR), which will ensure the plant meets the newest Best Available Technologies (BAT) standards, especially regarding dust and NOx emissions.
“SFW’s mission is to help our customers achieve their climate targets efficiently and cost-effectively. With this project, Sappi will be one step closer to achieving their decarbonization commitments, while reaping the benefits of reliable energy supply and extending the lifetime of their current assets”, says Kari Kohvakka, SVP Service at SFW.
