Germany: Pulp Production Pöyry to Provide Engineering Services for New ATMP-Plant
Kabel Premium Pulp & Paper (KPPP) has awarded Pöyry with the detailed engineering services assignment for a new ATMP (Advanced Thermo Mechanical Pulp) plant at Hagen, Germany.
Hagen/Germany — The assignment includes process engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical, automation and instrumentation engineering, as well as permitting engineering and project scheduling.
The client produces high quality paper on two paper machines at the Hagen site. The company employs approximately 540 people. The paper mill is planning to use TMP (Thermo Mechanical Pulp) as a raw material for paper production in addition to existing ground wood and virgin pulp. To ensure future demand for raw materials, the manufacturer will set up a new ATMP (Advanced TMP) plant, which produces ATMP from spruce wood chips exclusively. The production capacity of the new ATMP plant will be approximately 100,000 tons per year.
According to Dr. Burkhart, Managing Director at Kabel Premium Pulp & Paper, the installation of the new ATMP plant is a further step towards producing new sort of paper in a resource-friendly way. The value of the order was not disclosed.
