Pulp & Paper industry

VA Teknik has finalized the installation of a new Rotating sludge scraper to Stora Enso papermill.

Sales & Business Development Manager Marko Kunerus

“It´s a huge challenge in these projects with the papermills, they have a short period when they stop the 24/7 operations for a week long maintenance break. During that week there is a huge amount of work that needs to be done. As example at this mill they have around 700 employees and during the break there are a thousand contractors coming in to do all the repair, maintenance and exchange of equipment to ensure safe operation when the startup is due. The planning and the project management need to be top of the line to ensure the safety during this intense period.”

Rotary Distributors to Scotland

Big supply to Scotland of rotating distributors are running through factory at the moment.

The massive flow of 1m3/sec running through 10 arms with the most perfect distribution on top of the media shows yet again that we have the experience of doing the right thing.

UK-client is expected to install these during late 2014.

VA Teknik supported the consultant during the entire feasability study and final design of the refurbishment of Hallstavik WWTP trickling filter, Sales Manager Marko Kunerus explains “We provide a wide range of solutions with all necessary applications for all kind of trickling filters, in this particular case we had a quite varying flow to consider and some challenges with the structural design which we needed to address. The project fell out great and the performance is actually better than both we and our client expected”
