Stora Enso Sachsen, Germany, placed the order for the rebuild of Eilenburg PM 1 with Voith Paper. In this case, Voith’s technical concept for the rebuild was convincing. The rebuild comprises former, press, dryer section as well as calender and air system. The installation of a NipcoFlex press and the rebuild of the existing calender to a Janus calender by reusing some of the existing components must be mentioned in particular.
Stora Enso Sachsen would like to improve paper quality as well as runability by the rebuild of PM 1. Furthermore, the operating speed of the production line is to be increased to 2,000 m/min. The rebuild is scheduled for May 2012.
PM 1 produces newsprint and telephone directory paper in a basis-weight range of 34-48.8 g/m² from 100% recovered paper.
