Valmet will deliver dewatering equipment and an automatic pulper feed system to Gruvön pulp and paper mill in Sweden. The automatic pulper feed system, including bale storage, destacking and dewiring for baled pulp, will make the bale receiving line process safe and efficient.
To adapt pulp production to the new requirements, TwinRoll presses will be placed in close vicinity to the new board machine stock preparation. The presses will wash the pulp one last time before it moves to the new board machine.
The order is part of the investment in a new board machine and rebuild of the existing pulp mill at the Gruvön site. BillerudKorsnäs is investing in the Gruvön mill to meet growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions for the global food and beverage industry.
Equipment start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
