May 2, 2012 - Andritz said that it has received an order from JSC Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill (APPM) to supply equipment for a new semi-chemical pulp line for APPM's Novodvinsk mill, Russia.

According to Andritz, the green liquor cooking and washing technology will improve the fiber quality and reduce effluents, as well as lowering production costs.

The scope of supply comprises the chip washing system, the cooking plant with continuous steam-phase digester, flat disc refiners, washers, screw presses, electrical equipment, and instrumentation and control systems.

The new plant will use birch and aspen as the raw material to produce 1,000 tonnes per day of fluting and testliner pulp grades, doubling the mill's current capacity, Andritz said.

Start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.
