Suzano entrusts Andritz with maintenance for new pulp mill

Brazilian pulp producer Suzano selected international technology group ANDRITZ to provide modular maintenance services for its new mill being built in Ribas do Rio Pardo, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

The five-year contract covers several maintenance modules for all process islands and equipment of the new mill, which is scheduled to start up by June 2024. The modules comprise lubrication as well as predictive and inspection maintenance services, including vibration and thermographic analysis of electrical and mechanical equipment.

With an annual production capacity of 2.55 million tons, the new Suzano mill will be the world’s largest plant with a single eucalyptus production line. ANDRITZ is supplying the main equipment and services for this project.
