Sappi Ngodwana mill’s Groundwood Galileo project was initiated to have the mill’s traditional grinders equipped with Valmet’s unique Galileo grinding technology. The delivery and installation of the last two units were however interfered by Covid-19, but due to open-minded use of virtual technology and seamless co-operation between Valmet and Sappi, the project was successfully closed on time and within budget.
Pulping and biorefinery companies can benefit from utilizing Valmet’s piloting capabilities, ranging from comprehensive laboratory-scale to industrial-scale trials, to test new raw materials or pulping and biomass pretreatment processes, for example.
