Valmet has received an order from Stora Enso in Sweden to convert its existing feed system in cooking plant to a Valmet Pump Feed System. By upgrading to a Valmet Pump Feed System, Skoghall mill intends to improve availability and reduce maintenance costs. The upgrade also includes a Valmet Chip Feeder specially designed to connect to the existing system and secure the flow to the chip pump. The new system is to be installed and started up at their annual shut down in autumn 2020.
“We are happy that Stora Enso Skoghall Mill choose Valmet as supplier and that Skoghall put trust in Valmet's new technology for continuous cooking feed lines,”
