Paper Machine No.7 Is Getting Ready for Water Runs


Presently Paper Machine No.7 is being prepared for water runs, and the first start-up with water to be fed to the wire section is due in the second half of January. Equipment installation in the main paper machine building is in process.

The finishing building is fully ready for operation. Operators are getting the knack of operating the equipment under the supervision of the vendors. At the same time young employees who have not had on-site training at other mills are undergoing training.

The coater building has undergone some considerable transformations. Now it is virtually fully clad with sandwich-panels, and roof sheeting installation is under way. Once the building is completely covered, temporary heating will be arranged in order to start equipment installation.
