The stripping for APPM’s semi-chemical pulp plant started
At the industrial site of Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC began the stripping of a new semi-chemical pulp plant. The group of companies Creator (St. Petersburg) won a tender for realization of this complex of works, which overall cost is 13.5 million rubles.
The general quantities of the pit — 44×103 m. As explained the head of the reconstruction and capital construction department of APPM Fedor Baranov, the base plates of dismantled buildings of blowpit and boilery are at the different depth of occurrence. Therefore pit’s depth (mark) is variable — from 3.5 m to 5.5 m. It is necessary to disassemble the vertical foundation’s walls of blowpit and boilery to clear the top of the foundation plates.
The duration of the pit’s installation — 30 week days.
The next step of Arkhangelsk PPM investment project realization will be the stripping for a new plant in September 2012.
Let us remember that in March 2012 was igned a contract with Andritz (Austria) to build a new semi-chemical pulp plant. General design engineer of the project is Arkhgiprobum, JSC. Supplier of the ICS equipment (Industrial control system) for semi-chemical pulp plant — Metso Automation Inc. (Finland).
A unique for Europe technology of semi-chemical pulp cooking using green liquor will be used in the output of semi-finished products.
New department’s capacity — 1000 tons of semi-chemical pulp per day, that allows increasing the output volume of high-quality cardboard and corrugated paper up to 97 thousand tons per year.
Engineering development of semi-chemical pulp plant will be totally completed in April 2013.
The startup of new production in the infrastructure of Arkhangelsk PPM is scheduled for April 2014.
Cost of equipment — 936 million rubles, cost of plant construction — 1.76 billion rubles.
Plant’s startup will allow to minimize the expenses of production of paperboard and paper-based for fluting, improve their quality characteristics and significantly put down productions’ prime cost by reducing the amount of raw wood.
