Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Phoenix Pulp & Paper Co. has ordered from Metso, Finland, a cooking plant and a fiberline upgrade to its Khon Kaen mill in Thailand. Startup of the equipment is scheduled for July 2012. The value of the order is approximately EUR 10 million.

Metso's delivery will include a two-vessel digester for producing 200,000 metric tons of eucalyptus pulp per year. The delivery will also include a wash press for the fiber line upgrade. The new cooking system will enable the Khon Kaen mill to increase the production capacity and utilize the raw material more efficiently. It will also reduce the mill's environmental impact.

Founded in 1975, Phoenix Pulp & Paper is a subsidiary of SCG Paper, one of the leading integrated producers of pulp and paper products in Thailand. Phoenix sells its products to customers in Thailand and abroad.
