Valmet will supply an OptiConcept M containerboard production line for Cheng Yang Paper Mill Co.,Ltd. in Vietnam. The new production line is planned to produce high-quality containerboard grades out of 100 percent recycled raw materials. The start-up of the machine is scheduled for 2015.
“The line ordered by Cheng Yang Paper Mill will be Valmet’s fifth OptiConcept M production line to be supplied to Asia. The first delivered line was successfully started up in China in December 2012,” says Kari Räisänen, Sales Director of Valmet. “The advantage of our OptiConcept M technology is in its modular approach which enables short delivery times, quick startup and low project costs.”
Valmet’s novel OptiConcept M production line stands for economy of total investment, personnel safety and machine usability as well as reduction of environmental load. The production line optimizes the machine investment in line with the mill’s capacity needs and ensures optimized productivity at minimal operational cost. The production capacity of the new machine will be approximately 1,450 tons per day and the design speed is 1,300 m/min.
