Andritz to supply fiberline upgrade to Altri Celbi
(Graz, Austria, Feb. 09, 2017) Andritz has been selected to upgrade the brown stock washing process in the fiberline at the Altri Group’s Celbi mill in Portugal. Start-up is scheduled for autumn 2017. The new DD-Washer and other fiberline equipment supplied by Andritz will substantially improve the washing efficiency and increase the capacity of the hardwood fiberline.
This is a repeat order for Andritz at the Celbi mill, thus demonstrating the very successful, long-term business relationship between the two companies. The latest deliveries of Andritz technology were the pulp drying line and cooking process systems in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
Altri is headquartered in Porto, Portugal, and is one of the leading producers of bleached eucalyptus pulp in Europe. (Source: press release)
