Valmet will supply Parenco B. V. with high capacity winder for company’s containerboard making line PM2 in Renkum, Netherlands. The PM2 was shut down in 2009 by mill’s earlier owner due to declining demand of newsprint paper. Now, the machine will be converted to produce testliner and fluting grades, which are used in containerboards. The converted PM2 is scheduled to start-up during the third quarter of 2016.
The order is included in Valmet’s second quarter 2015 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“Valmet’s winding technology enables high capacity and reliable production of lightweight packaging board. The proof of this is our strong reference base in Europe. Our OptiWin two drum winders are well suited for multiple grades and models are available for all machine widths”, says Kenneth Åkerlund, Product Manager, Winders and Reels, from Valmet.
Technical information about the delivery
Parenco’s PM2 has a trim width of 8.5 m. After the conversion it will produce testliner and fluting grades at a capacity of around 385,000 tonnes/yr.
Valmet’s delivery includes a fully automated OptiWin two-drum winder comprising core feeding, automatic set change and an end gluing device. Valmet’s delivery also includes parent roll handling system, fully automatic roll marking and roll conveyor system, automatic core cutting and core handling system as well as related pulper and air systems and machine control system.
