Out of more than 1,000 applicants, Voith‘s XcelLine paper machine is a finalist in the ‘Design’ competition in the ‘Vision’ category. With eight competitions, the high number of applicants and more than 2,000 guests at the award’s closing events, the DNP is the most comprehensive award of its kind in Europe. The award is based on the goals of the 2030 Agenda and thus on the key transformation fields such as climate, biodiversity, resources, supply chain and society.
“Making it to the finals makes us very proud and confirms our ambition as a leading full-line supplier to provide our customers with the most sustainable and efficient paper production,” says Dr. Michael Trefz, President Projects, Voith Paper. “In addition to technical performance, the development of the XcelLine paper machine also focused on resource efficiency, which is made possible by an optimized design. Compared to conventional systems, the XcelLine paper machine features reduced energy consumption, optimal fibre utilisation and lower water consumption.”
