Customer case:

Siam Kraft OptiConcept M energy efficiency containerboard making line

Siam Kraft Industry, a subsidiary of SCG Paper, in Thailand selected Valmet to supply a complete OptiConcept M boardmaking line with extended project implementation. PM 16 started up in October 2014, a full 11 days ahead of schedule, at the Ban Pong mill in Ratchaburi, Thailand. PM16 is a word-class example of energy-efficient production.

We needed to invest in a more efficient machine, with sufficiently high production speed, the opportunity to take advantage of economies of scale, and the ability to produce high-quality board. Saving energy was one of the drivers behind our investment as well."
Sompob Witworrasakul, Director of the Engineering Division at SCG Paper
