Empresas CMPC, a leading Latin American forestry, pulp, paper, tissue and packaging products producer, today announced that its landmark Guaiba 2 Project, in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, remains on budget and on schedule for start-up in the second quarter of 2015.
The facility was at 88% physical completion as of December 31, 2014. The main milestones achieved in the project's execution to date include the completion of the electric substation, the startup of the water supply system, the hydrostatic testing of the digester and, most recently, the first ignition of the recovery boiler.
Next steps at the project will include the pre-operational chemical cleaning of the recovery boiler, the steam blow of the pipe lines to the turbogenerators, migration of the control systems to the new control room, putting in operation a chipping line in the woodyard and continuing of the commissioning activities in other systems.
