VanTek announced the sale of the idled 5-meter-wide Kraft Linerboard paper machine from the paper mill in Moss, Norway, formerly known as Peterson Paper. A paper mill in Egypt has purchased PM5 and intends to install and start it up again at their mill in Egypt.
The 5-meter-wide, Kraft, 2-layer Linerboard machine is complete, well preserved, and in very good condition. Preparations to dismantle, export pack and ship the paper machine to Egypt are now underway and will be completed sometime in August 2013.
The Moss based paper mill had many visitors at the mill in the last several months and several of them are interested in the purchase of the other equipment including PM4, which is a 4.5m wide Linerboard machine, an OCC pulp recycling line, and a Continuous Kamyr Kraft Pulp mill.
