Valmet Corporation: Valmet to supply new equipment as part of major rebuild for Siam Cellulose Co., Ltd. in Thailand

Valmet Corporation's press release on May 21, 2014 at 09:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply a part of a major rebuild and some new equipment to a pulp
mill of Siam Cellulose Co., Ltd. (SCL) in Thailand. The mill is located in
Wangsala, Kanchanaburi province. The value of the order is around EUR 30
million. The order is included in Valmet's second quarter 2014 orders
received.

The order includes an upgrade of the cooking plant and a fiber line rebuild.
The new equipment delivery includes an evaporation plant, a recovery boiler,
an ash leaching plant and a non-condensable gas treatment (CNCG) collection
and burning system. The rebuilt plant is planned to be in operation in the
beginning of 2016.

"We chose Valmet based on our earlier successful experience with the Phoenix
Mill's recovery boiler performance and CompactCooking G2 technology," says
Surasak Amawat, Managing Director of Siam Cellulose Co., Ltd.

"This order continues our successful cooperation with Siam Cellulose, and
proves our commitment to move our customers' performance forward with
fit-for-purpose and value-adding solutions", says Anil W. Purankar, Vice
President, Pulp and Energy Business Line, Asia Pacific, Valmet.

Details about the order

The existing cooking plant will be converted to Compact Cooking G2 by adding
an ImpBinTMimpregnation system, a decision based on the successful experience
of improved pulp quality in Phoenix mill. The rebuild of the fiber line
includes installation of Delta screens, wash presses, screw conveyors and
medium consistency pumps.

The new evaporation plant will replace the existing plant and support the need
for increased pulp production. The new RECOX recovery boiler is a repeat
order from SCG Paper and will replace the existing boiler and increase the
pulp production capacity. The new ash leaching system will help the mill to
maintain low levels of potassium (K) and chloride (Cl).
