We supplied more than 50,000 kg of 1400mm diameter stainless steel heat recovery ducts between the Kankaanpää Knauf plant and the new heat recovery plant.
The Knauf plant produces drywalls, which generates warm water vapor. Vatajankoski recovers the heat and the recovered heat is fed to the district heating network’s flow water via heat pumps. The project makes innovative use of previously developed technology. The new use was developed by Vatajankoski, one of the pioneers in the energy sector. The recovered steam can be used to condense more than 30,000 cubic meters of water per year, which will be used as process water in the drywall plant in the future. At Ardor, we are proud to be part of such an advanced circular economy project.
