Voith Paper awarded contract from Green Bay Packaging for new paper mill in North America
27 July 2018
The family-owned paper and packaging producer Green Bay Packaging awarded Voith an order for a 300 inch (7.62 m) wide production line for testliner. The new PM 4 will be installed at Green Bay Packaging’s location in Green Bay, Wisconsin, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The order includes an effluent treatment plant, BlueLine stock preparation, WEP, XcelLine paper machine with a design speed of 3,940 ft/min (1,200 m/min) and a VariFlex Performance winder. The package also includes paper machine clothing, a seven-year Total Roll Management contract for several machines, and Papermaking 4.0 products.
The contract is of a breadth and scope previously unseen in the United States papermaking industry as a complete mill order has never before been sourced from a single manufacturer. The construction of the mill will be handled by Miron Construction Co, Inc., while KSH will supply the engineering, targeting a start-up in early 2021.
Voith Paper is a Group Division of Voith and the leading partner and pioneer in the paper industry.
