Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The Stora Enso, Finland, Langerbrugge Mill in Gent, Belgium, has selected PMT Italia S.p.A., Italy, as the supplier for its PM 3 press section upgrade. Startup is planned for March 2012.

PM 3, a 6,5 m-wide machine producing SC paper, will be rebuilt by partly replacing the existing press section steel framework with a completely new stainless steel one, giving PM 3 a longer life time and providing the necessary flexibility for future implementations as well as the development in press technology.

PM 3's existing top former will also be equipped with a new cleaning and mist removal system.
