Runtech Systems will supply a vacuum system rebuild to Norske Skog Golbey PM1 in France. The delivery includes eight RunEco EP600 Turbo Blowers with EcoDrop water separators and two low vacuum blowers. With the new RunEco vacuum system, PM1 will gain significant energy and water savings.
All existing liquid ring pumps are dismantled and the Turbo Blowers will be installed on the same premises, without a need for any extra building. Delivery also includes installation supervision with Runtech's own skilled personnel and a full training program in French for operators, maintenance and technical personnel.
Upgrading the vacuum system is a part of a major rebuild where Voith converts the newsprint machine into a state-of-the-art machine with two shoe presses. After the conversion, PM1 will produce 550,000 tons per year of fluting/liner and becomes the biggest machine in France. Startup is scheduled for the second half of 2023.
Environmentally friendly and energy efficient, RunEco vacuum system provides a reliable, completely water free vacuum solution. Less energy and no water contribute to lower CO2 emissions and smaller environmental footprint.
