Södra Cell Värö, one of the world’s largest pulp mills for long fibers sulfate pulp, has decided to carry out the project “Expansion SCV 2.0” with the ambition of increasing production capacity in order to reach 780,000 tons / year. Cellwood Machinery has been entrusted to supply a pulper-rebuild to Södra Cell.

A prerequisite for the increased production capacity is to ensure a stable process of dissolvement along with low maintenance and low energy demand. The contract covers one complete rebuild of the existing  pulper from 2016 to a brand new Grubbens 2W80 – 125/84 SF with a capacity of 2800 Air-Dry pulp/day. The project also includes a shaft unit with complete installation supervision and commissioning.

The delivery will take place at Väröbacka in March 2021.
