Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Nettingsdorfer Papierfabrik AG, Austria, has selected Toscotec, Italy, to rebuild the dryer section of its PM 6 at the Nettingsdorf mill in Austria. Nettingsdorfer Papierfabrik is a member of Smurfit Kappa Group and one of the largest European sites of the company. The mill is one of the leading producers of containerboard in Europe. PM 6 produces kraftliner with a 7.4 m reel trim and 1,100 m/min. speed. 

Rebuild of the dryer section of PM 6 is part of the Future Energy Plant Project. This forward- looking project has the objective to reduce CO2 emissions by 40,000 metric tons (= 2/3 of the current emissions). With this rebuild, Toscotec breaks new ground and takes it to the next level, by supplying a new dryer section for a large-format paper machine. 

Smurfit Kappa has decided to install five TT SteelDryers (three additional, and out of the 63 existing dryers, two will be replaced), as the best technical solution to achieve its production and efficiency increase targets. The TT SteelDryers will be designed for a steam pressure of 12 barg. The supply is on a turnkey basis, including erection supervision, commissioning, and startup assistance. 
The rebuild is scheduled for the second quarter of 2019. 

Smurfit Kappa is one of the leading providers of paper-based packaging solutions in the world, with around 46,000 employees in approximately 370 production sites across 35 countries and with revenue of EUR 8.6 billion in 2017. Smurfit Kappa is located in 22 countries in Europe and 13 in the Americas and is the only large-scale pan-regional player in Latin America.
