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.

“This project brings high efficiency, improved corrugators and printers runnability and recyclable packaging solutions to market. All challenges during this innovative project were solved fast by the Klabin and Valmet teams’ collaboration,” says Francisco César Razzolini, Industrial Technology, Innovation, Sustainability and Projects Director at Klabin.

In addition to the machine, the Valmet´s deliveries in phase 1 of Puma II project include a new cooking and fiber line and operation simulators. The pulp technology delivery is the first reference for Valmet's new technology Continuous Cooking G3.

"Once more the companies are making history together with innovative projects such as PM 27 producing Eukaliner and the newest and most modern cooking system in the world. 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.

Technical information about the delivery

Valmet-supplied PM27 is a complete kraftliner paper production line with an extended scope of supply delivery, including a wide paper machine engineering package.
