Valmet and CMPC have signed a letter of intent (LOI) for Valmet to deliver key technology for the BioCMPC project. The target of the project is to increase the production capacity of the Guaíba pulp mill’s line 2 from 1.5 million ADt/y (air dry tonnes per year) to 1.85 million ADt/y. The modernization is expected to start operation in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Valmet and CMPC target to finalize the contract during October 2021.

This expansion project, BioCMPC, targets both to increase the production capacity of the Guaíba mill and also improve the environmental performance with for example increased production of renewable electricity and minimized water usage in pulp production process.

“Valmet delivered the CMPC’s Guaíba mill line 2 in 2015 and the mill has been a showcase for many of our technologies. Over these years we have introduced value adding industrial internet solutions and offering our expert services for mill maintenance. To be chosen as the main partner for this remarkable project reinforces Valmet’s commitment for a more sustainable future,” says Celso Tacla, Area President, South America, Valmet.

“With this project we will continue delivering the best technology available combined with leading automation and industrial internet solutions for efficient and even more sustainable pulp production. This delivery will feature our latest technology to lower water usage, reduce emissions and eliminate odorous gases. Our experts will support optimizing the mill performance both onsite and remotely,” says Bertel Karlstedt, Business Line President, Pulp & Energy, Valmet.

A new kraftliner production line, PM 27, which was supplied by Valmet to Klabin, was successfully started up on August 30th, 2021 at Puma Project in Ortigueira, Paraná, Brazil. The order for the production line was signed in May 2019.

In 2019, Klabin decided to make the biggest investment in its 122-year history: Puma II project, which aims to produce 910 thousand tonnes of high-quality packaging paper annually in two paper machines. Besides the project’s giant size, a remarkable feature is that the kraftliner that is being produced in PM 27 uses 100 percent eucalyptus hardwood pulp. This disruptive innovation, which Klabin believes will strongly propel its future growth, goes against the traditional thinking that softwood pulp is required to make high-quality kraftliner.

Valmet delivered key pulp and paper technology for Klabin Ortigueira mill’s Puma II projectValmet delivered key pulp and paper technology for Klabin Ortigueira mill’s Puma II project

“This project brings high efficiency, improved corrugators and printers runnability and recyclable packaging solutions to market.

The machine start-up was really successful, and now we will continue working to reach the targeted paper machine performance, which is supported by several applications of Valmet Industrial Internet and a wide automation package," says Celso Tacla, President, Valmet South America.

Start-up work involved around 450 people in various places. During this period, a real-time integration system was used to dynamically manage the entire project progress wherever they were. In addition, advanced communication devices and remote support tools brought technology experts from Finland and Sweden into the job, ensuring high collaboration with the project team.
