Valmet will deliver a TwinRoll wash press to Holmen Paper AB’s Braviken mill in Sweden. The start-up, is scheduled for April 2024.
The order was included in Valmet’s orders received for the fourth quarter of 2022. Its value will not be disclosed.
“The TwinRoll wash press will improve the separation between the thermomechanical pulp (TMP) mill and the paper machine. With a better separation, we believe the paper machine will get a cleaner system, resulting in improved runnability and savings of chemicals, such as retention aid and similar chemicals. The good experience from the earlier installed TwinRoll wash press together with the possibility of common spare parts were also influencing our decision,” says Fredrik Bragsjö, production manager - TMP & WH, Holmen Paper, Braviken.
“We are happy to cooperate with Holmen and deliver an additional Valmet TwinRoll washing press to their Braviken mill. This order will help improve the energy and washing efficiency of the TMP mill. We’re also able to create a synergy for both presses when it comes to operational maintenance and spare parts,” says Michael Nylander, sales manager, EMEA Scandinavia Sales Pulp Solutions SE, EMEA, Valmet.
Valmet's scope of supply includes a TwinRoll washing press, electric motors, mechanical erection, basic engineering, commissioning, start-up, process support, and advisory services.
