The unit for PT Suparma will have a capacity of 350 tons per day based on a mix of 80% LOCC (Local Old Corrugated Containers) and 20% AOCC (American Old Corrugated Containers), Andritz said.

Andritz's scope of supply also includes engineering, erection supervision, start-up, training, as well as a spare and wear parts package.

Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2013.

PT Suparma supplies high-quality board and laminated wrapping kraft and tissue paper for the Asian market, also exporting to Australia and Africa. The company produces 190,000 tons of paper per year.
