Published Oct 7, 2010 10.00.00 +2 GMT

Metso will supply two board machines to Liansheng Paper Industry (Longhai) Co., Ltd. to its mill in Longhai City in Fujian Province on the southeast coast of China. The start-up of both machines is scheduled for the first quarter of 2012. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

Metso’s delivery will include two 7.25-m-wide (wire) board machines with a design speed of 1,200 m/min. The combined annual capacity of the two machines will be about 800,000 tonnes. The new PM 5 will produce testliner in the basis weight range of 100-140 g/m2 and the new PM 6 will produce fluting in the basis weight range of 65-100 g/m2. Both machines utilize new technology in machine building, design and operation.

Liansheng Paper Industry (Longhai) Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of Fujian Liansheng Paper Co., Ltd. In 2009, Fujian Liansheng Paper ordered a containerboard machine from Metso to its Zhangzhou mill. The new order for two machines to the Longhai mill further emphasizes the good co-operation between Fujian Liansheng Paper and Metso.

Metso is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services for mining, construction, power generation, automation, recycling and the pulp and paper industries. We have about 27,000 employees in more than 50 countries.
