Metso will supply Chenming Jilin, part of Shandong Chenming Paper Holdings Ltd., with the relocation and rebuild of a paper machine for the company’s new mill site in Jilin Province, China.
“The main target of the project is to
increase production by improving the efficiency of the paper making line and by
increasing the drying capacity of the paper machine,” says Jukka Vuorela, a sales
manager at Metso.
A paper machine of Chenming Jilin will be
relocated within Jilin City from the current mill site to the company’s new
mill site. Metso will supervise the dismantling and packing of the paper
machine line and supervise the installation and startup of the relocated equipment.
The paper machine to be relocated is the
6.95-m-wide (wire) PM 12 paper machine. The modernization will include forming
and drying section modifications and a press section rebuild with a new SymBelt
shoe press. Originally, the PM 12 produced coated wood-containing light-weight-coated
paper grades; after the rebuild, the target also is to produce other new paper
Metso’s delivery will also include a
rebuild of the relocated PM 12. The startup of the relocated and rebuilt
machine is scheduled for the second half of 2013.
