Valmet will offer a recovery boiler upgrade service to Lee & Man Pulp Manufacturing’s Chongqing mill in China. The project is scheduled to be finished in the second quarter of 2022. The order is included in Valmet’s orders received in the third quarter of 2021. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“The company’s solution will solve our actual issues and apply the proven advanced technical knowhow with the latest innovations. I believe that our recovery boiler will achieve safe, stable, and efficient operation after this upgrade. And the future cooperation between Lee & Man and the company will be further strengthened,” says Zhang Dingjun, Senior Manager, Chongqing Lee & Man Pulp Manufacturing Limited.
“We firmly believe that with the company’s technical advantages and full-service capability, the recovery boiler will be greatly improved in safety, operational efficiency, and unplanned shutdowns,” says Fu Xuebing, company’s Senior Mill Sales Manager from China South Region.

Among multiple technical solutions, we decided on the optimal solution based on customer feedback, site audit, and comprehensive consideration of reliability, purchase lead time, production schedule, cost control, and logistics,” says Amanda Xu, company’s Product Sales Manager, China Services.
