MUNGUIA, Spain, July 2, 2010 (Press Release) -Once more, Spanish Saica group has put its trust in Brunnschweiler technology for the supply of the drying and ventilation system for its new board machine, to be installed in Great Britain. PM-11 will be located in Partington, south Manchester, and will start-up in the beginning of 2012. Designed to run at 1,500 m/min, this machine will produce 425,000 ton per year of testliner and fluting, from 100% recycled material.

Our supply includes the aerothermic installation and hall ventilation system of the new machine. With this project Saica remains faithful to its principle of purchasing these installations directly from Brunnschweiler to attain the best quality with all the guarantees and with a lower investment cost. All fans included in our supply are from Baltogar, a company of the Brunnschweiler group, and they are designed to guarantee the technical requirements of this high performance machine.

Saica and Brunnschweiler have had an excellent collaboration since the beginning of the 70's when Saica asked for the aerothermic installation and ventilation system for its machine 5 (today MP-7), placed in Zaragoza mill. Since then, Saica group has noticeably grown in the paper world, with the opening of the site of El Burgo de Ebro (Zaragoza) where three machines have been installed, the upgrade of the Venizel mill (France) and the current project in Manchester (Great Britain). The new PM-11 will be part of the long reference list of installations supplied by Brunnschweiler during its 40 years of activity.
