Valmet has received several pulp technology orders from Nine Dragons to its pulp mills in China. The deliveries include fiberlines and core components for recovery boilers and lime kilns. The deliveries will be done in phases and the start-ups are scheduled for 2022 and 2023.
The value of the order will not be disclosed. However, a project of this size and scope is typically valued at around Euro 100 million.
Valmet’s delivery includes six fiberlines, two recovery boilers and two lime kilns. The fiberlines will provide Nine Dragons with flexibility to produce pulp grades of different types. The new fiberlines provide possibilities to optimize pulp properties with lower power and wood consumption.

The two lime kilns have a capacity of 420 tonnes per day burned lime each. The lime kiln systems are equipped with Valmet Lime Mud Disc Filters, Valmet Flash Dryers, Valmet Rotary Coolers and Valmet Burners.
