Paper solutions provider Valmet will deliver two fiber line improvement projects to SCA Obbola mill in Sweden, which offers packaging paper, pulp, wood products, renewable energy, services for forest owners along with efficient transport solutions.
The delivery will include two projects, a Valmet ImpBin chip impregnation system rebuild and the installation of Valmet Wash Filter Hoods. The projects support SCA’s earlier investments. The first installations will take place during the mill’s spring shutdown in May 2023 and the installation of the filter hoods will take place during 2024.
The Valmet ImpBin chip impregnation system rebuild enables a thorough impregnation of the chips with liquor before cooking, leading to more stable and increased pulp production. It will stabilize and increase the mill’s pulp production and improve its energy efficiency. The new wash filter hoods are made of strong and durable glass-fiber reinforced plastic FRB with low weight. They offer easy removal and re-installation. It will improve the mill’s safety during regular maintenance and annual shutdowns.
“We have developed an excellent customer relationship with the SCA Obbola mill over the years and are happy to continue our good co-operation. These orders continue SCA Obbola’s extensive investments in the mill’s fiber line and show SCA’s trust in Valmet’s expertise and ability to improve its performance. Through the long-term partnership Valmet is able to contribute to the continuous development of all SCA’s mills,” says Andreas Lindstedt, Corporate Account manager, EMEA, Valmet.
