Successful project completion at UPM Caledonian Mill


We are delighted to confirm that Peter J Douglas Engineering Ltd (PJD), under the auspices of their framework agreement with Metso, recently carried out mechanical service works to the wood-fuelled boiler installed at UPM Kymmene Caledonian Mill, Irvine in Scotland. The initial scope of works was to be carried out at peak using a workforce totalling 32.

PJD were able to rapidly mobilise with a team that is highly experienced in carrying out works on a similar boilers in Scotland.

In total, over 200 pressure part welds were executed, with a zero failure rate. Despite some initial challenges, all definite and emergent works were completed to the satisfaction of the client. A successful boiler hydraulic test was completed on the afternoon of Friday April 26th and all mechanical works were completed some 24hrs later.

PJD are one of the UK’s leading maintenance companies serving biomass generators throughout the UK and this project highlights our strong and committed relationship with Metso for the service of their boiler fleet in the UK.
