Valmet will supply Smurfit Kappa Piteå with a cooking plant rebuild into CompactCooking G2 and brown stock washing equipment for its mill in Piteå, Sweden. The order is included in Valmet's fourth quarter of 2017 orders received.

Valmet's scope of supply includes a new ImpBin(TM) with CompactFeed(TM) G3, pump feeding system and a new pressure diffuser. The start-up of the cooking plant rebuild and brown stock washing equipment is planned for May 2019.

"The rebuilt cooking plant will utilize the wood raw material more efficiently and lower the use of additive chemicals in the process. In addition, the cooking rebuild will lower the energy consumption within the process area which is in line with our sustainability goals," says Bo Johansson, Technical Manager at Smurfit Kappa Piteå.

"We are happy to see that Valmet's sustainable solutions bring value to our customers and that our cooking and washing portfolio is very strong," says Patrik Lidbäck, Sales Manager at Valmet.
