Metso has been awarded a contract to deliver a major rebuild of the PM 9 tissue machine of Svenska Pappersbruket AB’s Klippan mill in Klippan, Sweden. The start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the third quarter of 2011.

Metso’s delivery includes a major rebuild of the existing suction breast roll forming section, which will be replaced with an Advantage DCT type crescent forming section, a rebuild of the existing approach and stock preparation system and a minor rebuild of the existing press section. Furthermore, a state-of-the-art OptiFlo II TIS headbox is included in the delivery. The project is handled on an installed basis, including dismantling of the existing equipment, complete installation and start-up and training services.

The purpose of the PM 9 rebuild is to meet the growing market demand and to further increase product quality, operating speed and production capacity, as well as to reduce energy consumption. The investment amounts to EUR 2 million.
