Valmet will deliver two fiber line improvement projects to the SCA Obbola mill in Sweden. The deliveries include a Valmet ImpBin chip impregnation system rebuild and the installation of Valmet Wash Filter Hoods.
The Valmet ImpBin chip impregnation system rebuild enables a thorough impregnation of the chips with liquor before cooking, leading to more stable and increased pulp production. The new wash filter hoods are made of strong and durable glass-fiber reinforced plastic FRB with low weight. They offer easy removal and re-installation, thus improving safety during inspection and maintenance.
The first installations will take place during the mill’s spring shutdown in May 2023, and installation of the new filter hoods will take place during 2024. The orders were included in Valmet’s orders received for the first quarter of 2023.
Mr. Andreas Lindstedt, Corporate Account Manager, EMEA, Valmet, stated, “We have developed an excellent customer relationship with the SCA Obbola mill over the years and are happy to continue our good co-operation. These orders continue SCA Obbola’s extensive investments in the mill’s fiber line and show SCA’s trust in Valmet’s expertise and ability to improve their performance. Through the long-term partnership, Valmet is able to contribute to the continuous development of all SCA’s mills.”
