ANDRITZ to supply complete OCC line to United Paper, Thailand
International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from United Paper Public Company Limited (“United Paper”) to supply a complete OCC line for its mill in Prachinburi, Thailand.
Start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2022.
ANDRITZ will supply the main equipment – from pulping to the storage tower – featuring the following technological highlights:
- LC pulping system comprising a FibreSolve FSR pulper with newly designed rotor and TrashWell standpipe for efficient reject removal as well as state-of-the-art detrashing machinery. The new pulping system not only enables excellent slushing of the raw material at minimum fiber loss, but also focuses on efficient separation and removal of rejects with highest availability.
- Innovative PrimeScreens X for screening and fractionation with new PrimeRotors for superior screening performance, savings in energy consumption by up to 25% as well as fast and easy maintenance.
The new OCC line will have a design capacity of 550 bdmt/d and process a mixture of AOCC and LOCC to produce linerboard. The scope of supply also includes the detailed engineering and supervision of installation, commissioning and start-up.
Wachara Chinsettawong, Deputy Managing Director, United Paper, says: “The benefits related to energy savings and maintenance as well as the excellent performance we are having from the first line that ANDRITZ delivered to us were the main reasons for our decision to trust in ANDRITZ once more.”
This order once again strengthens ANDRITZ’s leading position as a supplier of OCC lines in Thailand.
United Paper Public Company Limited was founded in 2004 and is an important producer of various kraft paper grades for linerboard and corrugated medium.
