ANDRITZ to Reconfigure and Upgrade a Softwood CTMP Line to One of China’s Biggest Hardwood Mechanical Pulping Lines
International technology Group ANDRITZ has been awarded an order by Xinxiang Xinya Group Co., Ltd. (Henan Xinhai Paper Co. Ltd.) to supply key equipment, a new automation system, and services for the upgrade of a softwood CTMP line which was transferred from Canada to China.
Start-up of the new line, reconfigured by ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER to one of China’s biggest hardwood mechanical pulping systems and based on the patented P-RC APMP technology, is scheduled for the end of 2012.
The pulp produced will be used primarily for board grades; however, the line provides also the possibility to produce printing and writing grades in the future. The line capacity is 700 t/d.
