Valmet will supply a new container board making line with extensive packages of automation and services to Batı Kipas Kagıt Sanayi İsletmeleri in Söke, Turkey. The new board-making line (PM 3) will produce high-quality fluting and liner grades. The start-up of PM 3 is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
The order is included in Valmet’s orders received for the third quarter of 2021. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The total value of an order of this type and delivery scope is typically around EUR 90-110M.
“The new board machine PM 3 will be a showcase of Valmet’s high-level technical innovations. Batı Kipas Kagıt wants to be a forerunner in technology. We selected Valmet due to its innovative solutions and the good performance of Valmet’s earlier delivery of our PM 1 in Kahramanmaraş,” says Sinem Öksüz Dedebayraktar, Member of Board of Kipas Holding.
“Our cooperation with Kipas Kagıt has been excellent. In August, we also announced a multifuel boiler delivery to the same customer. The high-level technical solutions we have offered have really been differentiation factors to Kipas Kagıt – in this sales project, aqua layer headbox, impingement drying and hard nip sizer are good examples of them,” says Haluk Arıcan, Senior Sales Manager, Turkey, Valmet.
