Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Stora Enso, Finland, has ordered a new testliner machine from Voith Paper, Germany, for its Ostroleka mill, approximately 120 km north of Warsaw, Poland. The new PM 5 will allow Stora Enso to meet the increasing demand for corrugated board and ensure the competitiveness of its location. Startup is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.

At a wire width of 8,600 mm and a design speed of 1,800 m/min, the Narew PM 5 will produce 455,000 metric tons of testliner per year. The new machine is especially designed for the production of lightweight testliner in a basis weight range of 65 - 140 gsm. The key focus of this investment is on low operating costs as well as a resource-efficient overall concept.

Voith Paper will supply the entire paper machine from headbox to winder. A particular highlight is the new DuoDryer CC that will be installed in the Narew PM 5 for the first time. It permits symmetrical drying with a continuously closed web run. Light and low-tension papers can be produced at high speeds and high efficiency at the same time. A VariFlex winder also is included in the scope of supply.

In addition to the OnQ ModuleSteam (steam box) and the OnV ConditionMonitoring (machine monitoring system), the automation package also includes the new OnV EnergyProfiler software. This software visualizes energy consumption of the paper machine and thus permits energy cost saving production. A quality control system with two Voith LSC Scanners supplements the package.
