25 August 2021

Valmet has received several pulp technology orders from Nine Dragons for their pulp, paper and board greenfield project in Beihai city, Guangxi autonomous region, in China. The order consists of two complete fiberlines, two bleached chemi thermo mechanical pulp (BCTMP) lines, a recovery boiler and DeNOx scrubbers. The deliveries will be done in phases and the start-ups are scheduled for 2023. 

The value of the order will not be disclosed. However, a project of this size and scope is typically valued at around EUR 140M. The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the Q2 2021.

The fiberlines will provide Nine Dragons with the flexibility to produce pulp grades of different types. The new fiberlines provide possibilities to optimize pulp properties with lower power and wood consumption. This allows Nine Dragons to achieve excellent resource efficiency.

The BCTMP lines are designed to provide high yield, low energy consumption and excellent pulp quality for the new paper machines.

The recovery boiler is designed for low emissions and high availability.

The DeNOx scrubbers for the recovery boiler and lime kiln are equipped with chemical feeding to achieve very low NOx emissions.
