Chile's CMPC Celulosas to Enhance Pulp Capacity

ANDRITZ will deliver the equipment for a capacity increase of Line 2 at CMPC Celulosa’s Santa Fe mill in Chile. The scope includes a new debarking and chipping line for eucalyptus, as well as equipment for and modifications to the existing fiberline, pulp drying line, and white liquor plant. All these areas were supplied on an EPC basis by Andritz Pulp & Paper in 2006. The order value amounts to approximately 40 MEUR. Start-up after the upgrade is scheduled for September 2011.
The original design capacity of Line 2 was 780,000 t/a. The upgrade and new equipment will enable the line to produce 1,126,000 t/a of prime grade market pulp. Andritz received an order to upgrade the existing Andritz recovery boiler to support this capacity increase in October 2009.
