Valmet will supply recycled fiber lines for Umka Cardboard Mill rebuild in Serbia. The order is a continuation of Valmet’s board machine rebuilds delivery, which will be started up during the second half of 2021. The main target of the rebuild is to increase the customer’s production capacity and improve end-product quality. The recycled fiber lines are scheduled to start-up during the first half of 2022.
Valmet’s delivery will include substantial changes to the recycled fiber lines for Umka’s paper machine PM 1. These include an Old Corrugated Containers (OCC) line with reject handling and a rebuild of two Deinked Pulp (DIP) lines.
“Together with the customer, we built a solution that will help Umka increase recycled fiber lines capacity, reduce maintenance, and improve end-product quality. We’re happy to be able to provide services, technology, and the industry expertise as an end-to-end partner for Umka,” says Hanna Jokinen, Director, Capital Business, Paper business line, Valmet.
