Valmet has been awarded a contract to supply three winders for Shanying International’s facility in Hubei province, China.
Under the contract, Valmet will be responsible for the supply of three high-capacity OptiWin Drum two-drum compact winders.
The winding are expected to provide flexibility for the mill's two production lines with high capacity potential as well as smart drive controls and optimization, Valmet said.
The deal follows the delivery of the Valmet OptiConcept M board machine (PM 21) in December 2017 by Valmet.
Planned to be commissioned by the end of the year 2018, the three winders capacity will cover the production of two board machines.
Valmet board and paper mills business unit vice-president Mikko Osara said: "Valmet is supplying or has delivered already six paper or board machines for this customer – the latest ones being the orders of the testliner machine PM 21 and two earlier started-up container board lines in Ma'anshan.
“Valmet has also just recently announced a waste-fired boiler delivery for Shanying International Holdings. These earlier projects and strong track record with winders convinced the customer to choose Valmet,"
With basis weight range of 80-170 g/m2, the winders have design speed of 3,000m/min.
In 2014, Valmet had delivered three similar OptiWin Drum winders to Shanyin’s Ma'anshan site.
China-based Shanying International is engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of paper products, which include various packaging paper boards, newsprint paper, corrugated cardboard boxes, culture paper and other paper products.
