Chiping County Senqiang MDF ordered with Valmet a new EVO-56 Defibrator system for its mill in China. This is a new fiberboard line and the Defibrator system will produce 30 tons per hour bd (bone dry) unresinated fiber. The start-up is scheduled for June 2018.
According to the Valmet’s information, an order with this scope of supply is usually valued in the range of EUR 1.5-5 million.
Mr. Xu Tao, General manager of Sensen Group, commented:
“There is a huge demand of MDF and the wood-based panel industry is an upward trend. Currently, the environmental protection requirements become more and more strict. Considering the industrial restructuring and product upgrading, we have decided to invest in the continuous line to produce 300,000 m3 MDF on an annual basis. From this investment, we hope to improve our product quality, reduce consumption and operation cost, to become more environmentally friendly with less emission, to better adapt to the tough market competition and to drive the company to a higher level of development.
We carried out a very careful market investigation and visited many other MDF plants. We chose to buy from Valmet, because we believe Valmet’s equipment, technology and service will meet our requirements well.”
