PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper & Co., Indonesia, is relocating a containerboard machine to its Subang mill in Indonesia. Startup of the relocated machine is scheduled for the last quarter of 2011. The value of the order will not be disclosed. However, according to Metso, Finland, which is handling the relocation, the typical market value of this type of project ranges from EUR 5 to 10 million, depending on the scope of services.

A Tampella-manufactured (currently Metso technology) kraftliner machine will be reconditioned and modified to manufacture testliner and corrugating medium grades. Metso's delivery will include a broad scope of services including dismantling and packing supervision, engineering, installation supervision, and startup support of the machine.

Metso will also modernize the dryer section with a new hood and dryer fabric cleaners. A complete automation upgrade package with machine and process controls, quality measurements, and drive controls for the entire production line is also included in the delivery.

Established in 1974, PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper produces kraftliner, corrugating medium, duplex board, chipboard, and wrapping paper. Its current production capacity is 190,000 metric tpy. Through expansion in a new site at Subang, the annual capacity will increase to 540,000 metric tons.
