Valmet to deliver world's first electrical folding machine for pulp bales to Södra Cell Mönsterås in Sweden

Valmet will deliver the world's first two electrical folding machines for pulp bales to Södra Cell Mönsterås pulp mill in Sweden. The machines' start-up is planned for the last quarter of 2022. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

Valmet's scope of supply includes the release of the world's first electrical folding machine for bale handling systems. The new Valmet Electrical Folding Machine is a further refinement of the Valmet Folding Machine VKC.

By removing the hydraulics and using only electrical drives, Valmet is improving the performance of the machine as well as the maintenance personnel's and operators' working environment. In addition, electricity consumption is reduced.

Södra Cell Mönsterås mill in Mönsterås is one of the world's most modern and hi-tech pulp mills, with a production capacity of 750,000 tonnes of softwood and hardwood pulp per year. The mill's core business is pulp production, but it is also an important producer of green electricity. In 2020, the world's first commercial biomethanol plant commenced operations in Mönsterås, strengthening the mill's position as a growing supplier of biofuels.

Valmet is a leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
