Two Siemens SST-800 steam turbines are supplying electricity and process steam to Klabin's new pulp mill in Ortigueira, Brazil. The SST-800 has a capacity of 190 megawatts (MW), making it among the largest steam turbines in use in the pulp and paper industry worldwide. The plant has a total capacity of 270 MW, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
"For the Klabin project we delivered highly specific, very complex steam turbines that the customer has integrated into a customized process cycle. These two Siemens SST-800 steam turbines are a very good example of our excellent performance capabilities in terms of complex, customer-specific steam turbine projects," said Ronald Schmidt, head of Europe Industrial Steam Turbines at the Siemens Power and Gas Division.
Klabin's new plant is uniquely flexible, because it has two production lines and can produce two types of fiber simultaneously. The factory has an annual production capacity of 1.5 million metric tons of pulp. 1.1 million metric tons of bleached hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) and 400,000 metric tons of bleached softwood pulp (pine), a portion of which is converted into fluff pulp for products like baby diapers.
