Valmet to supply pulp production upgrade technology to PT. Tanjungenim Lestari Pulp and Paper in Indonesia
July 13, 2020
Valmet will supply pulp production upgrade technology to PT. Tanjungenim Lestari Pulp and Paper (PT TEL) in Indonesia. The delivery includes an upgrade of continuous cooking system, with a design capacity of 1,800 air dried tonnes per day, and two sets of new automatic baling equipment. With the new investments, PT TEL targets to increase its pulp production capability and improve its pulp quality.
The value of the order will not be disclosed. An order with this scope of supply and delivery is usually valued in the range of Euro 10-12 million.
This upgrade project will add the Valmet Continuous Cooking G3 technology to PT TEL's existing cooking system. A new Valmet ImpBin will be installed prior to the existing digester vessel, which will be upgraded with Continuous Cooking G3 features. ImpBin ensures homogeneous chip steaming and impregnation, which is the key to produce high quality pulp with high pulp yield and low reject content. The upgrade also includes Valmet's latest technology for chip pumping. The start-up is scheduled for the 4Q 2021.
In addition, the delivery includes a modern Valmet Wire Tyer, which is operated by electrical servo motors, resulting in exact and gentle wire feeding. The Valmet Wire Tyer ensures a reliable system for bale wire application that can process up to 300 bales in an hour. The new baling equipment is scheduled to be delivered in late 2020 and the startup is planned for the 1Q 2021.
