Production record

This May we broke our production record, resulting in a monthly production of 15709 ton. The old record from November 2017 was exceeded by 445 ton.

This november we broke our record for monthly production.
Thanks to a high availability and a high rate of production, the old record was beaten, resulting in a monthly production of 15264 ton.
This is the first time we have produced more than 15000 ton in a month. The old record was set in July this year.

Our record setting bale.

The financial year May -16 to April -17 resulted in a new production and delivery record.

The annual production record was exceeded by 15470 ton to 161507 ton and deliveries was exceeded by 12475 ton to 160313 ton. Our excellent quality on target defined from latest online technology by Gas Chromatography, PulpEye & CrillEye has contributed to the fact that we today can offer the cleanest high-bulky, good strength BCTMP in the market.

The ongoing work with preventive maintenance resulted in 2016 with the highest availability in the Waggeryd Cell history.
Continuous investment and work to reduce bottle necks in the production resulted in that the old annual production record was exceeded by 11325 ton in 2016.
New permit application to increase the production will be made in 2017.

A step further to reducing fossile fuel.

New environmentally friendly boiler.

Construction of the new boiler is progressing according to plan with start-up in September, 2016.
Here are some progress photos from the period October 2015 until April 2016.

During the planned maintenance shutdown week 41 the flashdryer has been upgraded and new screening has also been taken into operation.

Waggeryd Cell in Sweden invests 60 million SEK in a biomass boiler in order to replace LPG with bioenergy as energy source for the flash dryer. The ground work is just about to start. The mounting of the boiler will begin during March 2016 and the start-up is scheduled for September. The mill’s emission of fossil carbon dioxide will be reduced by 85 %.

Waggeryd Cell produces bleached CTMP and ever since start-up in 1989 the whole production has been flash dried using LPG as heat source. When the new boiler has started in September 2016, LPG will be totally replaced by bioenergy. It is a grate boiler with an effect of about 12 MW. The supplier is Urbas, an Austrian company specialising in systems designed to extract energy from wet and coarse wood fuels from sawmills, woodworking factories and general forestry thinning. It is a turnkey project and Urbas is responsible for the whole delivery, including projecting, mounting and start-up.

“This is yet another of the environmental investments we have done since we began modernising the mill fifteen years ago,” says Ulf Karlsson, MD Waggeryd Cell. “By replacing LPG for our flash dryer with heat from the new biomass boiler we will reduce our emissions of fossil carbon dioxide by 85 % at the same time as we reduce our costs. The boiler will be fuelled by sawdust, oversized wood chips and fibre residuals from our process as well as bark and fuel wood mainly supplied from our owner ATA Group’s sawmills.”

”So far we have invested about 500 MSEK, out of which about 95 MSEK are environmentally related, in the mill. It has raised our production level up to 150 000 tonnes of bleached CTMP pulp made from spruce and pine sawmill chips. Last year we scored yet another production record and increased the production by 6 000 tonnes of pulp. The investment in a biomass boiler will contribute to a long-term profitable and sustainable Waggeryd Cell,” Ulf Karlsson ends.

Urbas, with head office in Austrian Völkermarkt, has been designing, building and pioneering energy systems for use of biomass fuels for over 20 years. The company has realized and established over 1000 plants throughout Europe with power ratings ranging from 500 kW to 25 MW.

By replacing LPG with heat from the biomass boiler as heat source for the flash dryer, the emissions of fossil carbon dioxide will be reduced by 85 %.

In July we produced a total of 13 392 tons, which is 585 tons more than the previous monthly record.
During July we had an average production of 432 tons / day, and we noted a day with a production of 468,9 tons which is a new record for tons produced in a day.
