Feb 08, 2016. /Lesprom Network/. Kruger Trois-Rivières L.P. has awarded Pöyry (Montreal) Inc. detailed engineering services assignment for the rebuild of the Trois-Rivières newsprint machine No. 10 into a state-of-the-art lightweight and high-strength recycled linerboard production facility, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The assignment covers the recycled old corrugated container plant (OCC), paper machine inter-connections, balance-of-plant, upgrade engineering to the mill control systems, extensive migration engineering of the existing control system, and engineering for dismantling of replaced systems.
During the 20-month conversion project, the existing newsprint machine will be extensively modernised to incorporate advanced containerboard manufacturing technology. The new production line will produce 360,000 metric tons per year of lightweight and high-strength linerboard using 100% recycled corrugated containerbaord as raw material.
"Thanks to Pöyry's proven track record, we trust that this production line rebuild will be highly successful and that PM10 will rank among the very best lightweight and high-strength containerboard production lines in North America," says Christian Lemay, Project Manager at Kruger Trois-Rivières L.P.
Kruger is a leading paper producer in North America.
Pöyry is an international consulting and engineering company.
