The order consist of a kraftliner machine (PM27), a new fiberline, a new continuous cooking and a pulp dryer rebuild. The rebuild of the pulp dryer will increase the capacity of the current pulp drying line delivered by Valmet in 2016. The order is included in Valmet's second quarter 2019 orders received and the value of the order is around EUR 260-290 million.
Furthermore, Valmet and Klabin have signed Letters of Intent (LOI) for the delivery of a second kraftliner machine (PM28) and a second cooking and fiberline for which the final agreements are expected to be signed and delivery schedule to commence in May 2021.
„Our upcoming new kraftliner production line will be the world‘s first production line for kraftliner made from 100 percent eucalyptus pulp. We have done, together with Valmet, a lot of conceptual and engineering developments for this innovative solution that will deliver a high performance kraftliner for the corrugated container industry“, says Francisco César Razzolini, Industrial Technology, Innovation, Sustainability, Project and Pulp Business Officer at Klabin.
