Finland-headed energy and forest industry technology provider Valmet Oyj has recently announced that it will supply a Defibrator system and a Steam Separator PV system to Qinzhou Lvyuan Wood Co., Ltd in China with system start-up planned for autumn 2020.
Founded in 2001, Qinzhou Lvyuan Wood Co., Ltd is one of the large-scale MDF manufacturers in China with an annual production capacity of more than 750 000 m3. The company has four subsidiaries, which are located in Zhejiang, Guangdong, Fujian, and Anhui provinces, and four production lines, including three production lines with an annual output of 200 000 m3, and one imported production line with an annual output of 150 000 m3.
The Qinzhou Lvyuan project is a new investment of Lvyuan Group to expand its production and diversify its product range. The project is located in the Guangxi autonomous region. In recent years, Guangxi has actively developed the forestry industry, expanded the industrial chain and built industrial clusters.
We studied the equipment configuration of this project and compared several suppliers on their equipment performance parameters and actual use conditions in detail. After that, we chose Valmet to provide us the related fiber preparation equipment, which included the new generation of defibrator system and steam recovery system. It will enable an environmental production with the lowest operation cost and the best fiber quality, said Xu Zhaohui, Chairman of Lvyuan Group.
Valmet will supply a Defibrator system and a Steam Separator PV system to Qinzhou Lvyuan Wood Co., Ltd. in China. The start-up of the system, the value of which has not been disclosed, is planned for autumn 2020.
Valmet’s employees are real professionals in fiber technology, and they are very hardworking and dedicated. Valmet provided us professional technical support and services to ensure the success of our project, said Wang Zhenhua, Qinzhou Lvyuan Wood Project Manager.
Valmet’s scope of supply includes the newly released Defibrator Gen2 EVO 56 system and the Valmet Steam Separator PV. Valmet’s defibrators are known for their reliability and provide homogenous fiber material of the highest quality. The Steam Separator PV recovers process steam from the blow line that can be reused for preheating of the chips.
This will reduce fresh steam consumption significantly. This delivery will provide the highest performing and most energy-efficient fiberboard front-end system on the market.
This is an important prestige order for Valmet since it is the first time Lvyuan group buys from us. The delivery will give us important references in China and Asia, remarked Leif Sundberg, Sales Manager, Pulp and Energy, Valmet.
