Valmet (Finland) became the main supplier of technological equipment for the second production line of Arkhbum Tissue Group LLC (Industrial Park “Vorsino”, Kaluga Region, part of the Pulp Mill Holding Group), and FIS Impianti (Italy) — the supplier of the transport and packaging line.
As the Pulp Mill Holding Investment Policy Director, Vladimir Krupchak, said, the project for launching the second production line is in an active stage of implementation — the construction of the main production workshops is underway. A finished product warehouse for the second and third production lines of the plant has been built and put into operation.
Vladimir Krupchak also said that the commissioning of the second production line is scheduled for August 2022.
The capacity of the second line will be 70 thousand tons of commercial products per year. Due to this, production relative to the existing volume will double and reach 140 thousand tons per year. The company expects a 10 % growth of its share of the Russian hygienic tissue products market.
Investments in the second production line will amount to 10 billion rubles.
