Smurfit Kappa plans to rebuild a paper machine at its mill in the Netherlands


Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier plans to modify paper machine 1 at its mill in the Netherlands. According to the announcement, the company has already awarded Pöyry with the detail engineering services assignment for process engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical, automation and instrumentation engineering.

The paper machine 1 has been in operation for 40 years. Since the last modification, it produces Testliner & Fluting up to 1,000 metres per minute. In total, the Roermond mill produces around 600ktpa of paper on three paper machines.

The target of the rebuilding of the approach flow system and the wire section is to increase the operating speed as well as the production quality.
