Comment Print

Graz, Austria, 31 May 2012 -- International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Zellstoff Pöls AG, Austria, for the supply of a specialty paper production line. The new machine (width: 5.4 m; capacity: 80,000 tons/year; design speed: up to 1000 m/min) will produce very high-strength paper grades used primarily for shopping bags, high-grade medical packaging, and food packaging. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2013.

The scope of supply includes the stock preparation plant, an approach flow system, the fourdrinier machine, a high-precision steel Yankee to increase drying (diameter: 6.5 m), a calender, and the automation systems.

With this investment, Zellstoff Pöls is extending its paper production capacity at the Pöls mill. The company is the largest manufacturer of high-quality, elemental chlorine-free (ECF) sulfate pulp from softwood in central and southeastern Europe.

The Andritz Group is a globally leading supplier of plants and services for the hydropower, pulp and paper, metals, and other specialized industries (solid/liquid separation, feed, and biofuel). The Group is headquartered in Graz, Austria, and has a staff of approximately 16,700 employees worldwide. Andritz operates more than 180 production sites and service and sales companies around the world.
