Newsprint rebuild in India

Voith Paper has received an order from Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers, India, for the rebuild of PM 2 at their mill in Kagithapuram at the end of June 2001. The objective of the rebuild is to increase the speed from the current approximate of 850 m/min to 950 m/min and to enhance the quality of the paper produced. The existing DuoCentri II Press will be converted into a DuoCentri NipcoFlex(tm) press to increase dryness. A Voith ModuleSteam box will improve the CD moisture profile and therefore help to distinctly enhance quality.As early as in 1994, Tamil Nadu began producing newsprint based on 100% bagasse on the paper machine supplied by Voith Paper – at that time a pioneering achievement in India. Tamil Nadu is among the world’s leading producers of bagasse papers and produces approximately 180,000 tonnes of newsprint and printing/writing papers annually on two machines.
