Board machine in Archangelsk goes on stream after rebuild by Voith
In addition to the machine rebuild, Voith also undertook the basic engineering and supervised commissioning. The rebuild and assembly took just ten weeks and the warranted parameters for the machine were successfully achieved within three months after startup.
Not only did the rebuild of the wet section of the BM 1 improve board quality: following startup of the new semi-chemical pulp mill – and depending on a few other technical measures – the production capacity of the BM 1 will also be increased in the future.
APPM is owned by Pulp Mill Holding GmbH, an Austrian-German Group headquartered in Vienna. The company produces paper, board and corrugated grades in Russia and Ukraine.
