<< Back to Breaking News


Valmet has received an order for a new baling line and a cutter layboy rebuild as part of the Vulindlela project at the Sappi Saiccor mill in South Africa. The start-up of the rebuilt cutter and the new baling line is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.

The order was included in Valmet’s third quarter of 2018 orders received. An order with this scope of supply is usually valued around EUR 4 million.

The overall targets for the Vulindlela project are to reduce the environmental footprint of the mill and to increase its total production from 783 000 ADt/a to 890 000 ADt/a.

"Valmet was selected as the supplier of this equipment for their cost effective and innovative solution that meets the required production rate," says Wayne Weston, Vulindlela Project Director, Sappi.

"We are pleased to receive this order from Sappi and see our long and good cooperation continue along with this project. This time we can also offer automation services close to the customer through our office in Durban, which we hope will add value to the overall project," says Ulf Thorén, Sales Manager, Wood and Pulp Handling Business Unit, Valmet.

Valmet’s delivery includes a new cross cutter roll, new baling line machinery with a bale quality system. In addition, a bale quality system will be installed on the existing baling line. The existing conveyors between the cutter and the new baling line will be upgraded to fit the new production. The capacity of the new baling line will be 1200 ADt/d.
