International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Sappi Saiccor to supply a baling line with bale tracking for its mill in Saiccor, South Africa. Start-up is scheduled for 2018, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The order comprises a new baling line with a capacity of 250 bales per hour, machines to connect two existing production lines, and bale tracking for the new and the two existing baling lines. Although there is limited space available, no new building is necessary due to the special space-saving design of the Andritz baling line.
Situated 50 km south of the port of Durban in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the Saiccor mill is one of the production facilities for Sappi Specialized Cellulose. The mill has the capacity to produce approximately 800,000 tons of elemental chlorine free (ECF) dissolving wood pulp (DWP) per annum, mostly for the export market.
