Aker Kvaerner to supply cooking plant to Indonesian pulp and paper mill


2 February 2006 - Aker Kvaerner has received an order for delivery of a continuous cooking plant to a pulp and paper mill in Indonesia. The contract is worth approximately USD 10 million.

The new cooking plant is an important part of a modernisation project at the mill. The new cooking plant will increase the pulp production by 1 650 tonnes per day, using acacia as raw material.

The addition of the new continuous cooking plant, using the patented Compact Cooking™ technology, was selected in preference to extending the existing cooking plant.

“In recent years we have further developed our proprietary cooking method, making it even more beneficial in terms of productivity and pulp quality, as well as environmental performance. This prestigious order from one of the world’s leading pulp and paper companies confirms the strong confidence the market has for Compact Cooking™,” says Per-Åke Färnstrand, President of Kvaerner Pulping.

Under the new contract, Kvaerner Pulping AB, part of the Aker Kvaerner group, will provide engineering, procurement and supervision services. The new cooking plant is scheduled to start up in the second quarter of 2007.
