Stora Enso Skoghalls Mill upgrades to Valmet Pump Feed System

Valmet has received an order from Stora Enso in Sweden to convert an existing feed system in a cooking plant to its pump feed system.
By upgrading to a Valmet Pump Feed System, the Skoghall mill intends to improve availability and reduce maintenance costs.
The upgrade also includes a Valmet Chip Feeder specially designed to connect to the existing system and secure the flow to the chip pump.
The new system is to be installed and started up at their annual shut down in the autumn.
Robert Carlström, global technology manager at Valmet, said: “We are happy that Stora Enso Skoghall Mill choose Valmet as its supplier and that Skoghall put trust in Valmet's new technology for continuous cooking feed lines.”
Stora Enso Skoghall Mill is located in Värmland, the heart of Sweden’s paper province. With two board machines fed by mechanical and chemical pulping lines, the mill has an annual production capacity of 800,000 tonnes of paperboard for liquid and foodstuff packaging.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries. We aim to become the global champion in serving our customers.
