Valmet’s fiber line projects for SCA Obbola

ImpBin chip impregnation system rebuild and wash filter hoods

Obbola Paper Mill

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. 

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.
