Quality Management

Boiler Repair Works - Mondi Syktyvkar

SAPP Management was asked to perform an emergency repair of the Mondi Syktyvkar recovery boiler. Since execution had to take place during the annual shut down, the time for project preparation was limited to a very short preparation time of four months.

The repair works took 30 days and were handled in two shifts, 24 hours, 7 days a week. Within this tight period of time, 1672 original tubes were exchanged by performing 3344 welds. In addition to the initial scope, 196 welds at the nose arch were done. Furthermore, mechanically damaged tubes, which were found during the shutdown and regular maintenance repairs on tubes, were x-rayed and exchanged.

Welder Skill Tests

For this challenging project, the aim was to get the best welders available on the market. During the entire period to the shutdown, 168 welders were skill-tested at locations across Europe e.g. Russia, Finland, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

X-ray Performance Tests & Procedure Verification

The biggest bottleneck of this project was the limited time for x-rays between the welders' shift change. One week prior to the shutdown, all involved x-ray operators started to train fast handling with x-ray equipment in various positions.
