ÅF has signed a major consultancy contract with Iggesund Paperboard (Workington)
Iggesund Paperboard is part of the Swedish forest industry group Holmen.
Iggesund Paperboard will build a new biomass-fuelled CHP (Combined Heat and
Power) plant at its Workington paperboard mill in Cumbria, UK. The power output
of the CHP plant will be approximately 50 MWe and 80 t/h steam, which will be
delivered to the adjacent paperboard mill. After completion of the project, all
power and steam generated for the mill will be based on renewable biofuels. The
fuels will be fresh wood in chips or logs, bark and sawdust.
The ÅF assignment includes project management, engineering, procurement, as well
