Valmet will deliver a new high consistency bleaching system to Rottneros pulp mill in Sweden. This is the first step in a larger rebuild project, called Agenda 500, at the mill. The longtime goal is to increase both availability and the total production volume of Rottneros two pulp mills to reach a capacity of 500,000 ton per year.
Planned delivery time for the bleaching system is in July 2016.The order is included in Valmet's fourth quarter 2015 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed. Typically an order of this scale is valued at around euro 2-4 million.
"In our investment project we aim to increase capacity and lower our chemical consumption. We have had a long and good relation with Valmet over the years, which is one of the reasons for choosing them as supplier," says Nils Hauri, Production Manager at Rottneros mill.
"Valmet's bleaching system offers high availability with low operational cost, including energy and chemical consumption and maintenance costs. We are convinced that this bleaching system will live up to all expectations in this project," says Johan Eurenius, Sales Manager at Valmet.
