ABB has supplied and commissioned a full electrical solution for Grupo Gondi at its new 400,000 metric tons per year recycled containerboard mill located just north of Monterrey, Mexico. The project includes switchgear, transformers, motors, drives, and automation for the paper machine drive system with ABB's Ability™ System 800xA distributed control system.

ABB will also supply a specialty instrumentation package to enable Gondi to optimize operations while maintaining low energy costs.

Commissioning of the project is close to completion, with startup of the new paper machine, PM 7, scheduled this month, September 2020.

"Given the importance of this project, working with a reliable and experienced supplier that guaranteed meeting stringent paper machine specifications was crucial," said José Iribarne, Project Director, Monterrey Mill, Grupo Gondi. "ABB also has solid resources for support and maintenance in Mexico, and we look forward to working with them to ensure ongoing success."
