Voith to deliver stock preparation system to Lucart Group
Voith recently reached a deal with Lucart Group for the delivery of a BlueLine stock preparation system at the company’s paper mill headquarters in Porcari, Italy.
The scope of supply includes all the latest Voith technologies to minimize energy consumption and achieve maximum efficiency in fiber usage. Above all, the Intensa technology was a key factor for Lucart in choosing Voith. With this pulping technology, based on a flow optimized vat and an eccentrically arranged rotor, Lucart will benefit from a significant increase in production capacity and energy savings of up to 25 percent compared to conventional technologies. The new stock preparation line will be equipped with additional energy-efficient components and systems – like ComMix, InduraHiClean and the Pluralis refining technology – which will help the mill to accomplish its goal of maximum sustainable fiber usage.
“At Lucart, we’re continuously seeking to improve the sustainability of our operations,” said Franco Pasquini, Technical Director at Lucart. “Energy consumption reduction and efficient fiber usage are key targets in all our operations. The installation of the latest stock preparation technologies from Voith will contribute to accomplish our strategic goals.”
“Lucart is well known for its focus on environmental sustainability and experience in raw materials usage,” said Roberto Buzzi, Sales Manager, Voith Paper. “We’re proud of having earned their trust with our stock preparation technologies.”
