Visy starts up new pulp line

Australia’s Visy Paper has started up a new A$400 million ($200 million) pulp line at its greenfield mill in Tumut, New South Wales. The 629 tonne/day unbleached kraft pulp line was supplied by Kvaerner. The Anglo– Norwegian supplier also provided the recovery boiler, power boiler and lime kiln.

The new pulp line will supply 80% of the furnish for the mill’s 240,000 tonne/yr kraftliner PM 9 from Voith Paper. Recovered paper will make up 20% of the furnish, resulting in a total consumption of 50,000 tonnes/yr. PM 9 has been using only recovered paper as furnish since its startup on May 8.

The pulp investment is the first move into virgin fiber production for Visy Paper, which already produces 1.2 million tonnes/yr of waste-based linerboard on eight board machines in Australia and the US.

Visy is already in the early stages of planning an expansion of the mill, which will see the installation of a second pulp line with the same capacity as the existing line and a pulp dryer. But more wood will have to be planted for the second phase to go ahead. As a result, the company is looking for a partner to help set up and manage an additional 10,000 ha of plantations.
