Paper Excellence is pleased to announce that its Prince Albert facility has been granted a softwood fibre allocation of 1,033,564 cubic meters per year by the provincial government. “This fibre is critical to the restart of the Prince Albert pulp mill which is currently planned for the fall of 2023,” said Carlo Dal Monte, Vice President of Energy and Business Development. “This decision reflects the Saskatchewan government’s forward thinking and robust job creation ambitions. They have been terrific to work with—taking a real interest in our project and the Prince Albert community.” Paper Excellence’s Prince Albert team continues to bring better definition to the project in terms of facility equipment. “We remain dedicated to completing the facility’s pre-engineering and filing necessary provincial environmental approvals to achieve our targeted late 2023 restart date,” said Dal Monte. “As with many large projects, we are refining our understanding of the facility’s economics and the needed funding arrangements.”
International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up a chemi-thermomechanical pulping system delivered to Sun Paper for its mill in the city of Beihai, Guangxi, China.
The proven ANDRITZ P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) line features a capacity of 600 admt/d and processes eucalyptus wood chips as raw material to produce high-quality pulp for the production of printing and writing paper. It is now the sixth
P-RC APMP line to be delivered to the Sun Paper Group by ANDRITZ.
The scope of supply comprises all key equipment for the fiberline, including the following technological highlights:
*Two-stage impregnation system with outstanding MSD Impressafiners for efficient pre-treatment and optimum chemical impregnation of wood chips prior to refining
*High-consistency (HC) refining stage with two parallel ANDRITZ S2070 single-disc refiners for superior fiber properties and highest production flexibility
*Low-consistency (LC) refining stage with ANDRITZ TwinFlo refiners to develop optimal pulp strength at lowest shive content
