Valmet will supply a Defibrator system to Guangxi Shangsi Hualin Forestry Industry Co., Ltd. in China. The start-up of the system is planned for the middle of 2020.


The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the fourth quarter 2019. The value of the order will not be disclosed. An order with this scope of supply is usually valued in the range of EUR 2-5 million.


“We set many evaluation indicators when selecting the suppliers, and Valmet’s score was the highest. It is not difficult to reach our capability demands, but it is a difficult to reach our quality requirements. Our main product is ultra-thin board, which requires extra high-quality fiber, and that is Valmet’s advantage. Valmet’s technology know-how, equipment performance, reputation and references also received high scores. We are confident that our future cooperation will be very fruitful, and this project will be very successful,” says Zheng Shengjun, President at Guangxi Shangsi Hualin Forestry Industry Co., Ltd.


“We are facing a tight schedule, but with close collaboration we can make it. We expect to receive technical support and service from Valmet, not only for the project period, but also for after sales services. We are aiming for long term partnership,” says Chen Yuankun, Technical Manager at Guangxi Shangsi Hualin Forestry Industry Co., Ltd.


“This is an important prestige order for Valmet, since it is the first project with Guangxi Forest Group. The delivery will give us important references in China and Asia,” says Leif Sundberg, Sales Manager, Pulp and Energy, Valmet.

Valmet’s scope of supply includes the newly released second generation Defibrator system. The new system is a further refinement of the Valmet Defibrator EVO, already known for the reliable performance and high fiber quality.


With the Defibrator EVO 64, Valmet will further strengthen its position as a supplier of the highest performing fiberboard front-end system.
