Valmet will supply a board machine with an extensive automation and Industrial Internet package for JK Paper Limited’s Fort Songadh Mill in India.

The order is included in Valmet's orders received of the third quarter 2019. The value of the order is not disclosed.

“To increase our market share on the growing Indian market, we wanted to invest in coated board technology we could really rely on. For this reason, we tested the technology concepts at Valmet’s pilot facilities. We are also planning to use the piloting services to further develop our paper board products later in the project. Valmet’s know-how on coated board making with a long list of good references further strengthened our decision,” says S.K. Jain, Head of Packaging Board Project, JK Paper Limited.

“I’m really pleased that Valmet was chosen as the main supplier in this project. In addition to board machine technologies, we will deliver a large scope of chemical systems – our first chemical system delivery in India.

The coating is applied in multiple coating stations including a technologically advanced Opti Coat Layer coating station, which applies two coating layers simultaneously.
