Metso’s delivery will include the design and supply of the main equipment for the new fiber line, from cooking to bleaching. The batch cooking plant is to be designed according to the prehydrolysis process. Twin roll wash presses will be used in all washing positions.

The new fiber line will produce around 215,000 air-dried metric tons chemical cellulose hardwood pulp per year. In addition to the new cooking plant and fiberline, Metso also will supply equipment for the upgrade of wood handling, evaporation, and recausticizing, and a new ash leaching system.

The main part of the order is included in Paper and Fiber Technology’s third quarter 2011 orders received and the evaporation and ash leaching equipment delivery in Energy and Environmental Technology’s third quarter 2011 orders received.

The Ngodwana mill, located in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa, will convert all of its market pulp production to chemical cellulose.
