Valmet to deliver key pulp mill technology and automation for LD Celulose's mill in Brazil

Valmet will deliver key process islands for Lenzing's and Duratex's joint venture named LD Celulose S.A. The new 500,000 ton/year dissolving pulp mill is located in the cities of Indianópolis and Araguari in Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Valmet's delivery includes a fiber line, a pulp drying and baling line, an evaporation plant, a white liquor plant and a mill-wide automation system.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The value of a delivery of this size and scope is typically around Euro 200-250 million.

Valmet's delivery is part of the Lenzing and Duratex joint venture investment of approximately $1.3 billion in the 500,000 tonnes dissolving wood pulp mill where Lenzing holds a 51% and Duratex a 49% stake. The start-up of the new mill is planned for the first half of 2022 and will create approximately 8,000 direct jobs during the construction phase. When it is ready, LD Celulose S.A. will employ approximately 1,100 people to operate the industrial plant and the plantations that will supply it. The dissolving pulp is a key raw material for manufacturing Lenzing's wood-based textile and speciality fibers.

Valmet will supply key process islands with an extended scope of supply. Valmet's technology is proven for dissolving pulp production with several references. The equipment for this project is tailored for high availability and energy efficiency resulting in low operating costs.
