One of Susan Gionet’s favourite days of the year? Delivering new books for young students at Glen Falls school in Saint John. The books go to Glen Falls School Literacy Night, hosted annually for parents and students. “We have family-friendly, fun activities for parents and students planned,” said Jill Nylen, Community Schools Coordinator at Glen Falls. “With the help of Irving Paper and their donation of books and prizes, this will help our students build their home libraries.” “We are always thankful for our partnership with our Irving Paper PALS,” she said. “Their willingness to support our students and our school is overwhelming. It’s nice to have a partnership where our students benefit greatly.” Click Read More below for additional information.
The service agreement, which will start in September 2019 and run for more than nine years through to February 2029, will be managed locally by ANDRITZ Chile. It is the largest maintenance and service contract ANDRITZ has ever been awarded.
This order follows the announcement by ANDRITZ in October last year that it would be supplying major woodyard equipment, fiberline, white liquor plant and evaporation technologies and equipment for the MAPA project. The scope also includes a complete operator training system with an exact model of the plant areas to train the operators in customer-specific operating scenarios. Completion of the MAPA project will make the Chilean company the third largest supplier of eucalyptus pulp globally. The modernization and expansion project is due to start up in the first quarter of 2021 and will see the mill producing 2.1 million tons of pulp annually.
“This is an important order for ANDRITZ because it further strengthens our relationship with the Arauco group, which represents almost half of the Chilean pulp production market,” says Luis Binotto, Senior Vice President and Division Manager at Sindus ANDRITZ.
ANDRITZ SYNERGY™ Services is a long-term service agreement for process equipment and a contract that has the flexibility to cover certain defined areas or the entire mill. The heart of the ANDRITZ SYNERGY™ Services agreement is process and equipment expertise in combination with customer experts to achieve the agreed targets.
