Valmet to supply oxygen delignification system to Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill, Russia

Valmet will deliver an oxygen delignification system, including additional Valmet TwinRoll presses to Arkhangelsk’s Pulp and Paper Mill in Novodvinsk, Russia. The order includes both technology and automation deliveries. The start-up of the new systems is scheduled for the second half of 2022. The order was included in Valmet's orders received of the third quarter 2021. The value of the order will not be disclosed. However, a delivery with this scope of supply is usually valued between EUR 10-15 million.

“Our collaboration with Valmet to rebuild our existing market pulp and board production facilities has been successful. Our previous experience with Valmet's rebuilding of Arkhangelsk washing and screening equipment project began in 2014, and we chose them because they are a reliable supplier of process solutions,” says Pavel Smirnov, Development director at Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill.

“Once again, we are pleased to be entrusted with delivering new equipment to Arkhangelsk’s fiber line. In 2015, Valmet delivered three TwinRoll presses to the same line, and the customer was very satisfied. We have had a good collaboration over the years and the new investment is a proof that our technology is the right one to produce high-quality, long and short fiber pulps. The latest generation of TwinRoll wash presses will ensure low effluent flows and high environmental performance throughout the fiberline,” says Mikael Gustafsson, Senior Sales Manager, Fiber Processing Business Unit, Valmet.
