YIT RECEIVES A SIGNIFICANT RECOVERY BOILER MODERNISATION ORDER FROM SWEDEN
YIT Industrial Services has concluded an agreement with Smurfit Kappa Kraftliner Piteå Ab on a major recovery boiler modernisation project where the heat delivery surfaces of the old recovery boiler will be dimensioned and rebuilt. The modernisation of the 38-year-old boiler will improve the availability and efficiency of the plant and increase its power generation capacity.
YIT's engineering workshop in Varkaus will start manufacturing the parts for the recovery boiler in the new year. Once the parts have been manufactured, the boiler installation work in Piteå will be carried out by about 150 professionals in summer 2011.
YIT Industrial Services is increasingly concentrating on maintenance and modernisation projects of existing boilers and pipelines, and it has this year implemented projects for a variety of customers, including LuleKraft and Stora Enso.
Compared to building a completely new boiler, the modernisation of an existing boiler can be implemented at lower investment costs, the project is completed in a shorter time, and many components can be re-used.
YIT Industrial Services is one of the leading Nordic companies in its field. Its services cover electrical automation projects, tanks, boilers and pipeline projects as well as industrial maintenance. YIT is the leading provider of industrial energy efficiency projects in Finland.
