Metso will supply Chenming Jilin, part of Shandong Chenming Paper Holdings Ltd., with the relocation and rebuild of a paper machine for the company's new mill site in Jilin Province, China. The value of the order will not be disclosed. A typical market value of this type of a relocation and rebuild project ranges from EUR 10 to 20 million.
"The main target of the project is to increase production by improving the efficiency of the paper making line and by increasing the drying capacity of the paper machine," says Metso's Sales Manager Jukka Vuorela.
A paper machine of Chenming Jilin will be relocated within Jilin City from the current mill site to the company's new mill site. Metso will supervise the dismantling and packing of the paper machine line and supervise the installation and start-up of the relocated equipment. Metso's delivery will also include a rebuild of the relocated PM 12. The start-up of the relocated and rebuilt machine is scheduled for the second half of 2013.
The order is included in Metso's Pulp, Paper and Power third quarter 2012 orders received.
