The biggest unit of process equipment ever manufactured by Estanc started its journey from Estonia to Chile last month. At the weight of 194 tons and 857m3 volume, this feedwater tank and deaerator is a critical component to the pulp and paper mill, designed to provide feed water for both recovery- and power boiler.
This project received a Ø5,500mm deaerator and feedwater tank with the shell length of 38,500mm. The unit is manufactured for the MAPA biomass plant construction project. It’s operating principle is to separate oxygen from the water circulating in the process equipment in order to guarantee the minimum oxygen content of the water entering the boiler and thereby minimize its corrosive effect. In addition, the water that is heated in the feedwater tank and flows to the boiler plays the role of a preheater and also acts as a buffer tank.
Transportation of a unit that in terms of size compares to 40 cars
When it comes to demanding loads, our cooperation partner AT Special Transport always delivers. At 7 meters, the total height of the load, the equipment was quite demanding in terms of road transportation. It would be difficult if not impossible to transport a bigger unit on the Estonian roads. The unit was transported safe and sound to Paldiski port, waiting to be shipped to its final destination to Arauco’s Mill in Chile.
Developing better measures to combat climate change
Project MAPA (Spanish acronym for Modernization and Extension of Arauco Mill project) will allow the company to continue to generate clean and renewable energy from forest biomass thanks to the construction of a new cogeneration boiler.
Big thanks for a long-term cooperation to our valued partner, Valmet Technologies Oy, who is delivering key technology for ARAUCO expansion project.
Feedwater tanks have been priority products in Estanc’s portfolio for years, having manufactured over 160 over the years. We are happy that we have earned our main customers full trust in this product category.
Projekti tulemusena soetatakse innovaatilised ja automatiseeritud seadmed (karussell-treipink, TOS sisetreipingi kõrgsurvepump ja moodsad orbitaalkeevitusseadmed), mis panustavad ressursitõhusamasse tootmisesse ning võimaldavad toodangumahte kasvatada.
Projekti prognoositav maksumus: 474 400 €
Novembris liitus superkondensaatorite tootja Skeleton Technologies kaasasutaja ja tegevjuht Taavi Madiberk Estanc AS nõukoguga.
„Jätkusuutlike eesmärkide integreerimine äristrateegiasse toob pikaajalist kasu keskkonnale ning annab uued kasvuvõimalused ettevõttele. Estanc on ainulaadselt positsioneeritud, et seda võimalust kasutada, vähendada keskkonnaalast jalajälge ja säästa kulusid paljudes sektorites: vee- ja jäätmetekäitlusest kuni energia ja tööstusliku tootmiseni välja,” ütles Madiberk.
Taavi Madiberk on ülivõimsaid energisalvesteid tootva ja muu hulgas Euroopa kosmoseagentuuriga koostööd tegeva Skeleton Technologiesi kaasasutaja ja tegevjuht. Madiberki on mainekas majandusajakiri Forbes valinud alla 30aastaste tippjuhtide 30 parima hulka teaduspõhiste tehnoloogiaettevõtete vallas.
Estanc on tema sõnul end tõestanud globaalse tootmisettevõttena, hea mainega ning laia kliendibaasiga, mis ulatub General Electricust, Hitachist kuni Valmeti ja Nesteni.
“Kuigi Estanc identifitseerib end tootmisteenust pakkuva ettevõttena, on üheks järgmiseks kasvusammuks omatoodete väljaarendamine. Tulemustele orienteeritud juhtimismeeskond, kellel on selge pikaajaline nägemus jätkusuutlikkusest ja aastate jooksul üles ehitatud oskusteabest, annab tugeva aluse selle eesmärgi saavutamiseks,” ütles Madiberk.
„Taavi esindab Estanci tulevikku. Tema valdkonnad: cleantech, tootearendus, kõrgtehnoloogiline tootmine ja erinevate rahastamismudelite mõistmine on meie jaoks kõik väga väärtuslikud,” ütles Estanci tegevjuht Mihkel Tammo. “Taavi panus meiega oma aega ja teadmisi jagada, on tulnud õigel ajal, sest nii maailma kui ka jätkusuutlikkuse väljakutsed on loonud olukorra, kus näeme vajadust julgete sammude järele. Estanc soovib kliimatundlikkusest lähtuvate turgude arengusse suunata rohkem jõupingutusi ja leida võimalusi radikaalseks innovatsiooniks,” lisab ta.
Estanci nõukogu koosneb viiest liikmest. Lisaks Taavi Madiberkile kuuluvad sellesse Raigo Tammo, Herty Tammo, Anti Tammo ja Kalle Palling.
Since of October 10, Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced from 100% renewable raw materials, launched in Estonia. Estanc is one of the first companies to switch to a completely fossil free fuel and installed Neste My fuel tank to our factory complex.
Estanc follows to the principles of sustainability, based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our focus is on health, the natural and living environment and energy. We use energy produced from 100% renewable energy sources in our office and production facilities.
Neste MY offers us the opportunity to switch our heavy machinery fuelling to an environmentally friendly alternative which reduces the negative impact on environment as the fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to fossil diesel. ”We use considerable amount of diesel per year and by switching the fuel, we can help minimize the negative environmental impact of our operations,” says Erika Pihl, Sustainability Coordinator at Estanc.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon quality fuel that can fully replace conventional diesel and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. During the initial phase, private car owners and heavy-duty vehicle drivers can refuel with renewable diesel at one station in Tallinn, at Kadaka tee.
One of Estanc’s promises is to manufacture high quality products in long-term. Quality is a continuous process, improved with the combination of skilled and engaged workforce, well-thought processes, customer focus and quality manufacturing equipment.
Although the responsibility to create a good product does not rest only on the equipment, it is a vital factor. Quality new machinery tends to be at the top of its class in terms of technology and functioning, having a positive impact to efficiency, as well as employee performance and motivation. Focusing on small improvements on daily basis will gradually lead up to the biggest impact.
Over the course of 2019 we have made number of upgrades in terms of production machinery. When it comes to coorporation with the suppliers, we are looking for high quality and sustainable solutions from industry experts.
Thanks to working closely with our partners such as Fronius, Pemamek and Linde we are able to increase the level of our operations and services. Among purchased items are mobile power sources for orbital tube welding from Polysoude, MIG/MAG power sources from Fronius, rollerbeds and APS Skymaster positioners from Pemamek and LPG forklift truck from Linde.
Massive congratulations to our brother company T-Tammer OÜ on becoming The Family Enterprise of the Year 2019 in the Entrepreneurship Award competition organised by Enterprise Estonia!
Estanc and Tammer are brothers, they truly are. The companies are founded by Raigo Tammo and owned by the Tammo family. Furthermore, both companies are literally run by brothers, Mihkel and Anti who also cross sit on the advisory boards of these companies.
The Family Enterprise of the Year is awarded to recognise companies that are run by families from several generations.
Tammer is the biggest metal door producer in the Baltics, specializing in producing fireproof and standard doors and windows from both steel elements and flat metal.
Brotherly rivalry, on which manufacturers of the two find more growth and success in their business strategy, has always been a driving force between us two and we are thankful for it because that pushes us both to get better
Estanc was also named as a TOP 3 nominee in the same category in 2018. It is safe to say that Tammo family is a vivid member of Estonian family company scenery and looking forward at the accelerating World then we see this as a very important merit. Value of family we believe will remain unblemished forever!
