Fluor Corporation has completed its work with Stora Enso’s consumer board machine in Beihai, Guangxi, China, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Fluor provided procurement and construction management services for the innovative board machine and associated infrastructure, including power, water and effluent treatment facilities. The facility is integrated with a sustainable eucalyptus plantation.
Fluor managed more than 5,500 craft workers at peak on this fast-paced project, which achieved production of the first consumer board on reel just 18 months after the start of construction.
At full production, the consumer board machine will produce 450,000 tons per year of liquid packaging board and other high-grade paperboard products to meet the demand in China.
“We look forward to delivering the same results on the project’s second phase, a mechanical pulp mill, as it completes in the 4Q 2016,” said Juan G. Hernández, president of Fluor’s Life Sciences & Advanced Manufacturing business.
Fluor Corporation is a global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance company.
