Hectic moments

We are now living probably the most hectic moments of the project. Site manpower is more than 1100 and we have have given safety trainings to more than 2600 people. The machine itself already looks like a board machine and from now on most emphasis is put on more or less  “invisible” items such as electrification, initial testings and installation of pipes.

The electrification is very large in this project, including a lot of transformers, switchgears, huge sectional drive, 300 meters of electrical cabinets, etc. Last week (week 17) we started up the new UPS-system for the first time. This week we will get the middle voltage electrical distribution and MCC running. We will have to complete more than 10 000  I/O checks.

Still some pipes to  install.


Installation of tanks.

Drying section growing. PM 1 running at full efficiency on the left hand side.

Wet end on 28.4.2016. Quite impressive, I think.

Coating section growing longer and longer.

One of the most critical point will be during the mill shut down on 9 - 22.5. Then we will dismantle the old wrapping line and install the missing part of the new wrapping line as well as the new core cutting line. These will be taken into use by PM1 when the mill starts up again on 23.5.
We usually call these frying pans, but they are press plates in the wrapping line.

 Pulp and core storage proceeding.

The sun is shining, summer is arriving and the newborn eagle is spreading its wings.
