Published Nov 5, 2010 14.00.00 +2 GMT

Metso will relocate a containerboard machine for the Indonesian PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper & Co. to their Subang mill in Indonesia. The start-up of the relocated machine is scheduled for the last quarter of 2011. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The typical market value of this type of a relocation project ranges from EUR 5 to 10 million depending on the scope of services.

A 7-m-wide Tampella-manufactured (currently Metso technology) kraftliner machine will be reconditioned and modified to manufacture testliner and corrugating medium grades. Metso’s delivery will comprise a broad scope of services including dismantling and packing supervision, engineering, installation supervision and start-up support of the machine.

Metso will also modernize the dryer section with a new ValHood dryer section hood and OptiCleaner Pro dryer fabric cleaners. A complete automation upgrade package with machine and process controls, quality measurements and drive controls for the entire production line is also included in the delivery.

Relocation services are part of Metso’s full-scope offering, combining expert services, machine rebuilding, project management and automation solutions, and reflecting the wide Metso installed-base know-how.

Established in 1974, PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper produces kraftliner, corrugating medium, duplex board, chipboard and wrapping paper. The current annual production capacity is 190,000 tonnes. Through expansion in a new site at Subang the annual capacity will increase to 540,000 tonnes.
