Metso to deliver valves to Stora Enso project in China
Metso will supply altogether about one thousand valves for Stora Enso's consumer board machine project in Guangxi, China. To guarantee effective services for the new mill, Metso will also strengthen its service presence in the Guangxi area. The consumer board machine is part of Stora Enso's integrated mill project being implemented in two phases in China.
The value of the order has not been disclosed. Part of this order is included in Metso's first-quarter 2015 orders received and divided bookings will follow during the remaining three quarters in 2015. Metso's deliveries will take place during 2015, and the consumer board machine is scheduled to be operational at the beginning of 2016.
The valve delivery contains Metso's Neles ball valves, V-port segment valves and triple eccentric Neldisc butterfly valves for on-off and control applications. The control valves are equipped with Neles ND9000 series intelligent valve controllers, which have the capability for advanced performance follow-up. They also enable predictive maintenance planning activities.
