International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Dezhou Taiding New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd., China, to deliver a second chemi-thermomechanical (P-RC APMP) line to the mill in Pingyuan County, Dezhou City, Shandong Province, China. The ANDRITZ fiberline already installed at the mill supplies the company’s paper machines producing printing and writing paper and board grades. It has been operating successfully since 2021.
Zhang Qingchao, Vice General Manager of Production, Dezhou Taiding, says: “The ANDRITZ P-RC APMP line at our mill has consistently shown top fiber quality, remarkably low energy and chemical consumption, and high operational reliability. It was clear for us to partner with ANDRITZ again for our capacity increase.”
The new line with a capacity of 400 admt/d will process poplar wood chips into high-quality mechanical pulp. ANDRITZ will furnish the fiberline with its state-of-the-art key equipment, covering all stages from chip washing to pulp storage. The scope of supply also comprises the basic engineering and on-site services including installation, commissioning, and start-up supervision. Start-up is scheduled for the beginning of 2025.
