May 25, 2023 (press release) –

ANDRITZ has received an order from Liansheng Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd. to supply two debarking and chipping lines for the new pulp mill being built in Zhangzhou, Fujian province, China.

The company had already entrusted ANDRITZ with major supplies for the pulp mill last year.

ANDRITZ’s scope of supply for the woodyard includes two debarking lines with rubber tire supported debarking drums for excellent debarking results with very low wood losses as well as horizontally fed HHQ-Chippers ensuring high capacity without compromising on chip quality. The line has a capacity of 300 m3 hardwood solid-over-bark per hour. The scope also includes a bark handling system with three BioCrusher BSX machines and bark storage with two ParaScrew travelling screw reclaimers.

The order will be completed on an EPS (Engineering, Procurement, Supervision) basis. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2024.

This order shows the excellent business relationship between ANDRITZ and Liansheng Pulp & Paper. ANDRITZ is already in the process of supplying state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly technologies for all main process islands in the fiber production plant and the chemical recovery plant to the Zhangzhou mill.

Liansheng Pulp and Paper (Zhangzhou) Co., LTD., founded in April 2020, is a new forest, pulp and paper integrated production base being built by Liansheng Paper, which is the largest packaging board producer in Fujian Province, China. Liansheng Paper pays special attention to environment friendly production.
