Siemens powers paper mill in Thailand
Phoenix Pulp and Paper PCL ranks among the most important Thai pulp and paper mills with a production capacity of around 200,000 tons of printing and writing paper a year.
The company decided to purchase the Siemens SST-300 steam turbine with a capacity of 31 megawatts to increase the paper mill's efficiency. The turbine is driven by steam produced in a boiler fueled by waste biomass from pulp producion, and partially also coal. This paper mill will burn more than 200,000 tons of biomass, mainly from eucalyptus. The steam turbine was supplied by the Siemens site in Brno in the Czech Republic.
