Pre-feasibility study and project management for SCA Östrand pulp mill.
SCA is a leading forest product company and owner of one of the largest private forests in Europe. SCA was planning to expand its operations in Östrand pulp mill and ÅF assisted with safe, sustainable and reliable process solutions. ÅF also assisted with project management.
The Östrand pulp mill produces TCF bleached softwood kraft pulp, 415000 kADt/a, and CTMP-pulp, 90 kADt/a for both tissue and publication papers.
ÅF was contracted by Östrand to make a pre-fesibility study to expand mill for a pulp production of 800 kADt/a.
Östrand did already have a recovery boiler and a lime kiln with capacities corresponding to 800 kADt/a bleached pulp in production.
ÅF evaluated process and mill layout for the new planned capacity, calculated investment costs and preliminary feasibility.
