“The most important target for GJPP was that PM 2 will be a high-capacity board machine line with state-of-the-art technology. The customer also emphasized the importance of low operating cost. Valmet’s coated board line and its very low energy and water consumption values were proven to be the lowest ones when comparing to competitors,” says Timo Saresvuo, Senior Sales Manager, Valmet.
