Valmet to supply an automation system for Blue Paper's new SRF boiler in Strasbourg, France

1 November 2017

Valmet has been selected to supply a Valmet DNA Control System for the new Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) boiler Blue Paper SAS is building in its site in Strasbourg, France. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The delivery is scheduled for early 2018, and process start-up is planned for spring 2018, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

Valmet delivery will consist of an 800 I/O's Valmet DNA automation system that will control the new steam production plant: boiler, fuel storage and supply and utilities, with integration to the current Valmet automation system used in the paper mill and communication with the external systems like analyzers and unloading system.

Valmet's automation solution is a part of a global Euro 24 million investment. Blue Paper is currently processing to install a new 22 MW steam production plant based on Solid Recovered Fuels that will replace the two gas boilers of the mill, with the output of 30 tons/h of steam. The project is supported by French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) through the "CSR - Combustibles Solides de Récupération" (SRF) call for projects for which Blue Paper has been selected.

Blue Paper's Strasbourg mill produces corrugated case material, and its products are made solely of 100% recovered paper in an environmentally friendly process.

Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
