Valmet has successfully completed the annual shutdown of Klabin S.A. Monte Alegre paper mill in Brazil.
The agreement covered the entire shutdown project from planning and execution to a safe start-up. The shutdown took place between April 24 – May 5, 2017, and included close to 500 employees from Valmet and its sub-contractors.
Valmet and Klabin have an existing agreement for full annual shutdown services. This year's project was the second of the three-year agreement.
"We have co-operated with Valmet since 2009 and the current partnership was a natural follow-up of the relationship we have been able to build over the years," says Arnaldo Jasinski, Klabin's Maintenance Manager.
