Valmet will deliver equipment and services to rebuild the hardwood pulp line at Holmen’s Iggesund mill in Sweden. The rebuild will cut variable costs and improve production stability. The work will be implemented during the second half of 2022.

The order is included in Valmet’s orders received in the second quarter of 2021. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

“We have a good experience in working with Valmet since we have had their presses in our mill for many years. This rebuild will lower the load on the effluent and reduce variable costs, which will strengthen our competitiveness,” says Johan Björkman, Project Manager, Iggesund.

“This rebuild is the first step towards a press-based bleach plant in the hardwood pulp line. The high outlet consistency makes the process easier to control, and the volume of effluent will be less than for washers with lower discharge consistencies. Also, water and chemical consumption will be minimized. We are looking forward to good cooperation in this project”, says Mikael Gustafsson, Sales Manager, Valmet.

Technical information about Valmet’s delivery

The scope of the Valmet delivery includes main machinery, basic engineering, and erection. In the first stage, a vacuum filter will be replaced with a new TwinRoll press, and in the second phase, the remaining filters in the bleach plant will be replaced with TwinRoll presses.

 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
