Valmet will supply an extensive paper machine grade conversion rebuild with an automation package to Model Paper Eilenburg in Germany. In the project, the paper machine, which currently produces newsprint grades, will be rebuilt to produce lightweight, recycled containerboard grades. The start-up is scheduled for the beginning of 2024.The value of the order will not be disclosed. The total value of an order of this type and delivery scope is typically around Euro 90-100 million.
Valmet's grade conversion delivery will include a rebuild of the DIP (deinked pulp) line and OCC (Old Corrugated Container) line, updates to stock preparation, and a rebuild of the board machine.
The OCC line will be featured with upgrades to HC cleaning, coarse screening, and LC cleaning to increase the capacity and the handling of brown fiber. Fiber fractionation and long fiber fine screening maximize the efficient stickies removal. Underneath the machine, a new broke collection minimizes the consistency variations, and machine screening ensures the final fiber quality.
The board machine with a 10,050-mm-wide fabric will produce fluting and testliner grades with a basis weight range of 70 -120 g/m2. The design speed of the new parts will be 2,000 m/min with a daily capacity of approximately 2,000 tonnes.
Model Group develops, produces, and supplies intelligent, innovative, and high-quality display and packaging solutions made of solid and corrugated cardboard.
