Comment Print
Graz, Austria, 08 May 2007 -- International Technology Group Andritz, Austria received an order to supply of a complete fiberline, pulp drying/baling plant, and white liquor plant for the world's largest pulp mill to be built in Brazil. The design capacity of this greenfield bleached eucalyptus market pulp mill is 1250,000 ton/year. Start-up is scheduled for 2009. The order value is more than EUR 200 million.

The order was placed by Poyry Empreendimentos Industriais S.A., the contractor chosen by Chamflora, subsidiary of International Paper, to build the mill at the Três Lagoas site in Brazil's Mato Grosso do Sul state. International Paper recently transferred this project to Votorantim Celulose e Papel (VCP) as part of an asset exchange between the two companies.

The fiberline represents state-of-the-art process technology that will provide the best yield, washing efficiency, and minimal chemical consumption. The pulp dryer (working width 9.334 m) is based on twin wire former technology that has been proven in several high-capacity pulp mill projects around the world.

Andritz will provide the technology, equipment, basic and detailed engineering, electro-mechanical erection, erection supervision, start-up, and training.
