Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf is investing €134 million at its Nettingsdorf site to renew the energy supply as part of the Future Energy Plant project. The core of the project is a new soda boiler and a new steam turbine. Zauner Anlagentechnik GmbH is part of this project with the section “Balance of Plants”. This part includes the connection of the new plant with the existing one, as well as a new condensate system and the piping of the turbine hall. Zauner provides the know-how in design and planning as well as the competence in assembly and the global control concept.
A milestone was the lifting of the 105 t B2 pipe bridge, which was lifted in two parts on 20.11.2019. A truck-mounted crane with a load capacity of 500t was used for this purpose. The upcoming work includes the completion of the condensate system and the lifting of the remaining three pipe bridges in January. Also in January, the assembly work will start in the turbine hall, which represents the largest part of the BOP construction phase. The new plant will start up in summer 2020, replacing the old soda boiler and steam turbine.
