Andritz has received an order from Rondo Ganahl AG to supply dewatering and dispersing equipment to be installed in its paper mill in Frastanz, Austria.

Start-up is scheduled for end of 2024.

This upgrade will help the customer make his paper mill fit for the future to meet growing demands in the production process. ANDRITZ will replace the complete dewatering and dispersing equipment, which will increase the capacity of the system up to 230 bdt/d. Centerpiece of the new technology will be a Twin Wire Press, type TWP2833L, which will feature a custom-tailored modular design optimized for the limited space conditions at the installation site. The ANDRITZ Twin Wire Press is perfectly suited for dewatering all types of fibers, but especially when a high pulp dryness or the separation of water loops are required. ANDRITZ will also provide the basic engineering, supervision of erection, commissioning, and start-up as well as the operator training.

Bertram Elsensohn, Division Manager Technology, Rondo Ganahl AG, says: “This investment will allow us to expand our production capacity and improve the performance of our stock preparation line. We will thus be able to respond even better to market requirements in the future.”

Rondo Ganahl AG is an Austrian family business, whose roots go back to the year 1797. The company is specialized in manufacturing corrugated board packaging products and corrugated case material as well as in the collection of paper and packaging.
