Metso supplies TMP pulping lines

Metso Paper will supply TMP (thermomechanical pulp) pulping lines to two paper mills. The start-up of the Varkaus’ new line in Finland will be in June 2004. The new line at the Port Hawkesbury mill in Nova Scotia, Canada, will be started up in September 2004. The new TMP pulping line at the Varkaus mill will replace the current groundwood plant. The delivery will include all main process technology, with the installation beginning in November 2003. The maximum capacity of the new line will be 650-700tpd. The new TMP line will feed the two paper machines of the Varkaus mill, which manufacture newsprint and directory paper. Metso Paper will also supply all main process technology for the new TMP pulping line to Stora Enso’s Port Hawkesbury mill, where the new line will replace the current stone groundwood and high-yield sulphite plants. The installations will begin in January 2004. The maximum capacity of the new line will be 880tpd. Metso Automation will supply a DCS control system for the line. The new TMP line will mainly feed the newsprint machine of the Port Hawkesbury mill.
