Voith starts-up of five BlueLine OCC stock prep lines for Nine Dragons Paper

In early 2017, Voith received an order for six BlueLine OCC stock preparation lines from Nine Dragons, one of the largest manufacturers of packaging paper in Asia. With the recently commissioned PM 41 at the Hebei site, five Voith BlueLine OCC lines, each with a production capacity of 2,000 tons per day, have now been successfully launched. The handover of the sixth line is planned for 2022.

The five OCC stock preparation lines are the sole expansion that Nine Dragons has carried out over the past three years. Voith received the contract as the full-line supplier to deliver the entire approach flow systems together with the complete stock preparation portfolio.

While China is implementing restrictions on recovered fibre imports and stringent environmental regulations, papermakers are partnering up with suppliers who are offering leading sustainable solutions and technology in plant operations and stock preparation. Voith’s complete OCC solution creates sustainable and eco-friendly competitive production lines with 15 to 20% reduction in energy consumption and at least 0.5% fibre savings.
