HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Aug. 5, 2011 (Press Release) -In order to assure high quality pulp from recovered fiber while minimizing fiber loss and consuming low energy, Grupak Hidalgo S.A. de C.V. has selected Voith Fiber & Environmental Solutions to supply a complete OCC recovered fiber system, designed for 600 BDMTPD, for their new mill site in the municipality of Emiliano Zapata in Mexico. The startup of the OCC system is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.

Voith's scope of supply includes the new IntensaPulper R, which provides superior defibering capabilities while consuming less power than competitive pulpers. Also included is Voith's TwinPulp III detrashing system, complete coarse cleaning and screening systems, fine cleaning with EcoMizer Technology and fine slotted screening with C-bar slotted baskets and MF power-saving rotors. Voith-Meri will supply the pulper feed system including the Auto Wire Cutting machine plus the Compax reject press and other reject handling equipment.

Key to Grupak's supplier selection was the fact Voith's system is guaranteed to achieve high quality pulp with less fiber loss and lower energy consumption. Grupak verified the technology through mill visits in Spain where Voith has successful installations.

Grupo Unipak, S.A. de C.V. PT. is a large Mexican company producing a variety of food packaging products. The company currently produces liner and fluting grades for its own integrated use on two machines located in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
