Södra Cell has invested in a new wash press for its Mönsterås mill in Sweden. The commissioning and installation were successful and on schedule, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Södra Cell Mönsterås, which is Södra's largest paper pulp mill with annual production of 750,000 tonnes, has invested in a new wash press. Södra's decision to invest SEK 300 million ($34.5 million) in Mönsterås will lead to more efficient energy use and increased productivity at the mill.
"The new wash press will play an important role in our process to secure high availability, a grade of pulp that meets customer requirements and to achieve delivery reliability," said Olof Hellström, one of the project managers.
Lars Harrysson, project leader, said that the installation and commissioning were highly successful, and that the schedule was maintained throughout the project.
