Valmet to supply a new brown stock washing and screening line to Sappi Saiccor mill in South Africa

SOUTH AFRICA (News release) -- Valmet has received an order for the new magnesium oxide (MgO) no 3 brown stock washing and screening line for the Sappi Saiccor mill in South Africa. The delivery is part of the Vulindlela Project which targets to reduce the Saiccor mill's air emissions and effluents, and to increase its total production from 783,000 ADt/a to 890,000 ADt/a. The capacity of the new MgO no 3 brown stock and screening line will be 720 ADt/d.

The order is included in Valmet's third quarter of 2018 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed. An order with this scope of supply is usually valued in the range of EUR 5-10 million. The new line is scheduled to start up in June 2020.

The agreement is a continuation to the long-term successful cooperation of Sappi and Valmet. Valmet has earlier delivered key processes to other Sappi mills in South Africa. The Saiccor mill is situated south of the port of Durban in South Africa. With a capacity of 800,000 tons per annum of Verve sulphite Dissolving Wood Pulp (DWP), it is the world's single largest manufacturing site for fully bleached sulphite DWP.
