The project is part of Kruger’s $250-million investment to rebuild its No. 10 Newsprint Machine (PM10) to manufacture 100%-recycled, lightweight and high-strength linerboard. Once the conversion is complete, PM 10 will produce 360,000 metric tonnes of linerboard annually for use in Kruger’s box plants and for the global packaging market.
ABB will deliver and install drive systems for PM 10 and its winder. The scope of supply for this rebuilding project includes ACS880 MultiDrive Line ups, AC motors, System 800xA control system, supervisory systems, remote diagnostic services, high-speed data logging system, spare parts and local engineering, commissioning, installation supervision and start-up service.
Kruger Packaging L.P. is a Canadian manufacturer of containerboard and packaging products made from recycled fibers.
