YIT AGREES WITH ANDRITZ ON DELIVERY OF AIR TREATMENT MACHINES TO PULP MILL IN URUGUAY
YIT Industrial Services has agreed with Andritz Oy on the delivery of 21 module-structured air treatment machines to a pulp mill built in Punta Pereira in Uruguay. The module-structured air treatment machines will be used for cooling the electrical rooms of the pulp mills and for pressurising the facilities with chemically treated air.
The design process of the air treatment machines is underway, and the manufacturing will begin in September. The machines will be delivered to Uruguay in December, and installed in early 2012. YIT is responsible for the machine design and manufacturing, and Andritz for the installation.
The machines will be equipped with internal heating and cooling pipes. The automation system, cabling, programming and testing of the machines will be performed in Finland. The machine frames are sea containers, which means that the machines can be fully assembled and transported in a container ship from Finland to Uruguay. The modular structure will make for an easy commissioning and a shorter installation time compared to a traditional system built on-site. The machines will be placed on the roof of the rooms to be treated, or next to them, and will be integrated as part of the building.
