Power Generation Solutions for Pulp and Paper Production
The pulp and paper industry requires large amounts of power and heat in forms of hot air and steam. Solar’s best pulp and paper energy solutions use gas turbine-based cogeneration, better known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Cogeneration and CHP installations can reduce our customers’ carbon footprint and reduce energy consumption in pulp and paper production.

Cogeneration Solutions for the Pulp Drying Process
While producing electricity for the tissue paper manufacturing machine, the cogeneration system also provides hot air and steam for the pulp drying process, which helps with energy conservation. The gas turbine exhaust gases are directed at the Yankee hood for direct drying pulp and paper. The remaining energy is used in a heat recovery steam generator to create steam for the Yankee cylinder.
Decades of Experience in Paper and Tissue Production
Solar’s experience in the pulp and paper process and tissue paper manufacturing process spreads across the globe with installations in six continents. This solution that Solar offers directly assists customers with undisturbed tissue machine production, energy cost reduction, and energy consumption in the pulp and paper industry.
