"The fact that Metso is one of the best automation suppliers gives us security in project management. Close cooperation between our companies will provide a very high standard also in the future," says Attila Bencs, Managing Director, Hamburger Hungaria Power Ltd.
Hamburger Hungaria Power is currently investing approximately Euro 150 million in a new co-generation power plant adjacent to Prinzhorn Group's Hamburger Hungaria Paper Mill.
The plant will run on solid fuels, such as residual waste from paper production as well as biomass and coal. It will generate both heat and electricity, ensuring the mill's energy self-sufficiency and recovering waste paper that has earlier been deposited in landfills. The power plant will have a fuel capacity of 172 MW, a thermal capacity of 158 MW and an electricity capacity of 42 MW once in operation in the second half of 2015.
Metso's delivery consists of a Metso DNA boiler and turbine automation system, factory acceptance testing, commissioning and training. Delivery is scheduled for February 2015, and system startup will take place between March and September 2015. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
Prinzhorn Group ranks among the European market leaders in the recycling, paper and packaging industry. With an annual production of 1.7 million tons of corrugated board produced from recycled paper and an annual turnover of approximately Euro 1.1 billion, the company is number three in Europe in this segment.
Metso is a leading process performance provider, with customers in the mining, oil and gas, and aggregates industries.
