Feb 28, 2017 --Valmet will supply a paper machine rebuild for Sappi Maastricht in the Netherlands. With the rebuilt paper machine 6 (PM 6), Sappi will be able to improve the existing graphical board products and move into producing high quality solid bleached board (SBB) and folding box board (FBB) grades. Today PM 6 is producing coated woodfree (CWF) paper grades. The start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for early 2018.

The order is included in Valmet's first quarter 2017 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

"All the technical ideas were tested in pilot conditions at our Paper Technology Centers. With the results from the pilot trials and in close partnership, Sappi and Valmet were able to develop a new concept for Sappi Maastricht - a concept with some unique solutions", says Sales Manager Kari Sorsa from Valmet.
