Cheng Yang Paper Mill Co., Ltd. has awarded GAW technologies with an order for starch preparation, working station and wet end chemical preparation system for the PM2 at the location Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
The producer of brown paper (i.e. kraftliner, testliner and corrugated medium grades) was founded in 2003, and became a subsidiary of Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) Ltd. in 2008. The new PM 2 will have a capacity of approx. 500.000 tons/year, a width of 6.660 mm and a design speed of 1.360 m/min.
The GAW scope of supply is similar to other projects that have been handled for Nine Dragons’ production bases in the past and will also include Supervision and Start-up. GAW and the stock-market listed Nine Dragons Group – one of the largest packaging-grade producers in the world – have been linked together in a successful partnership for more than 13 years. GAW has already supplied equipment and services to numerous locations of the group, but this will be the first order at their Vietnamese base. Experience, technical expertise and conclusions from previous installations are taken into consideration at this order as well as new ideas of the customer are incorporated to assure an optimized plant and to secure a smooth production flow right after the start-up.
A special highlight of this unit is the integration of the APC system (advanced process control) of GAW. This application covers the complete raw material, chemicals and energy expenditure and files the information in a database. The consumption balance – referring to timeframe, production unit and tambour – is analysed and provided via processing algorithms. The data can also be retrieved in the interface-linked MES (manufacturing execution system) of the customer. The shipment is scheduled for middle of 2016 and the start-up will take place end of 2016.
