April 24, 2013
– Kadant Lamort SAS, a subsidiary of Kadant Inc. (NYSE: KAI), received an order for a turnkey deinked pulping (DIP) line from Russia-based tissue producer Syktyvkar Tissue Group. The recycled fiber deinking line will be installed at Syktyvkar Tissue Group's greenfield site in Semibratovo, located in the Yaroslavsky region of Russia. The new DIP line will have a capacity of 110 bone-dry metric tons per day and will feature Kadant's compact concept deinking line. With start-up of this new tissue mill in Semibratovo, Syktyvkar Tissue Group will become the largest producer of tissue in Russia.
"The selection of Kadant to supply our complete DIP line at our new facility in Semibratovo was based on our strong relationship and positive experiences following the successful start-up of Kadant's DIP line at our flagship mill in Syktyvkar," said Mark Reznik, managing partner of Syktyvkar Tissue Group.
"We were pleased to once again be selected by one of Russia's most innovative and forward thinking tissue producers to supply the new DIP line for the Semibratovo project," said Alain Serres, president of Kadant Lamort. "The ongoing collaboration between Syktyvkar Tissue Group and Kadant has continued to strengthen and we look forward to working together with Syktyvkar on future tissue projects."
Kadant's compact concept deinking line features the latest advanced technology for the production of tissue enabling the mill to operate with low energy consumption and maintain a small installation footprint minimizing the total investment in buildings and annual operating costs. The compact DIP line will include the power-saving Helisoft™ pulper rotor, the patented, all-in-one ScreenOne™ pressure screen, the patented new MAK-C™ deinking cell, and the industry standard DNT™ stock washer. In addition, the FibreWall™ screen cylinder is included with the ScreenOne system to maximize screening efficiency and the water treatment plant will use Kadant's pioneering Poseidon technology.
