Valmet will supply a new OptiConcept M container board making line with extensive packages of automation and services to Shanying Paper, Guangdong, at its Zhaoqing mill in China. The new board making line (PM 53) will produce test liner grades and continue the expanding of Shanying Paper’s business in Guangdong area. The start-up of PM 53 is scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
The order is included in Valmet’s orders received for the fourth quarter of 2020. The value of the order has not been disclosed.
The new order of PM 53 is following Valmet’s OptiConcept M board making line deliveries of PM 52 to the same site, which was announced in October 2020, and Shanying Huazhong PM 21 and PM 23, which have already been started up. In addition to these, Valmet has supplied six other board making lines to Shanying International.
“The board machines PM 52 and PM 53 will be built at a completely new site. Shanying Paper benefits from the fact that the machines will be sister machines as personnel training can be done simultaneously, and the amount of, for example, spare parts and spare rolls can be optimized,” says Hannu Savonen, sales manager, Valmet.
