Valmet will supply Defibrator™ system to Tianjin Shengsong Wood Co. Ltd in Tianjin, China. The start-up of the system is planned for the middle of 2020. Tianjin Shengsong Wood Co., Ltd. was founded in 2010 and is located in Baodi district, Tianjin, China. It belongs to a panel board group corporation, which has several panel board mills in different locations in Asia.
The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the third quarter 2019. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“In order to further improve our product quality, we decided to replace the existing fibre production system and chose Valmet’s defibrator and good machinery. We think that this will lead to excellent performance and results,” says Zhang Lijun, General Manager and shareholder, Tianjin Shengsong Wood.
“We closed this deal already in 2015 and have since then had a long-term cooperation with Tianjin Shengsong Wood. It is very positive that the customer wants to continue to invest in our products because of the added values that Valmet can offer,” says Leif Sundberg, Sales Manager, Pulp and Energy, Valmet.
Valmet’s scope of supply includes an EVO 50 defibrator system.
