Metso will supply process automation technologies and valve solutions for JSC Svetlogorsk Pulp & Board Plant's new bleached kraft pulp mill in Svetlogorsk, the Republic of Belarus.

The new 400,000 ton-per-year mill under construction will be the first bleached kraft pulp mill in the country.

Valve solutions include over 900 Neles automated valves of various types and sizes for both control and on-off applications.
