Aker Solutions awarded contract for chlorine dioxide plant in Russia

Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Ilim Group to supply an integrated chlorine dioxide plant for Ilim's pulp mill project in Bratsk, Russia. The contract value to Aker Solutions is approximately USD 18 million. Aker Solutions will supply technology, engineering, equipment, site and commissioning services from its office in Vancouver, Canada, with support from its office in Moscow.

The 15 tonne/day integrated chlorine dioxide plant is scheduled for commissioning in 2012, and will complement Ilim's USD 700 million project to build a new, modern 720,000 tonnes/year pulp line at Ilim Group's existing Bratsk Mill.

The plant will utilize Aker Solutions' proprietary integrated chlorine dioxide process technology, which has been adopted by pulp mills around to world to gain production cost advantages, and to reduce their dependence on external chemical suppliers.

"Our contract with Ilim marks our first chlorine dioxide plant to be supplied within Russia, which is emerging as a key market in the pulp and paper industry. We look forward to executing this project successfully, and then building upon this success to serve the Russian pulping industry again in the future," says David Ley, Aker Solutions' Vice President and General Manager of Aker Solutions Canada Inc.
