SINGAPORE, Feb. 4, 2008 (RISI) - Indonesia’s Pelita Cengkareng Paper is planning to increase its capacity by installing a new machine, PM 6. The firm is still deciding whether to build a new facility that will house the 200,000 tonne/yr containerboard unit or install it at the existing plant in Tangerang city, West Java province, some 20 km west of Jakarta, Indonesia.
Pelita is already in talks with several potential European and Asian suppliers for the machine. The project’s timeline is yet to be determined.
The firm completed a modernization scheme at its Tangerang facility late last year, comprising the installation of two turbine generators. Suppliers included Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Indonesia’s Euroasiatic Jaya.
The Tangerang plant already houses four machines with a total capacity of 193,000 tonnes/yr of kraftliner, corrugated medium and coated duplex board.
Metso relocates a containerboard machine for Indonesian Pelita Cengkareng Paper
Metso will relocate a containerboard machine for the Indonesian PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper & Co. to their Subang mill in Indonesia. The start-up of the relocated machine is scheduled for the last quarter of 2011. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The typical market value of this type of a relocation project ranges from EUR 5 to 10 million depending on the scope of services. The most part of the order is included in Paper and Fiber Technology’s Q4 orders received and the automation upgrade package in Energy and Environmental Technology’s Q4 orders received.
A Tampella-manufactured (currently Metso technology) kraftliner machine will be reconditioned and modified to manufacture testliner and corrugating medium grades. Metso’s delivery will comprise a broad scope of services including dismantling and packing supervision, engineering, installation supervision and start-up support of the machine.
Metso will also modernize the dryer section with a newhood and dryer fabric cleaners. A complete automation upgrade package with machine and process controls, quality measurements and drive controls for the entire production line is also included in the delivery.
Relocation services are part of Metso’s full-scope offering, combining expert services, machine rebuilding, project management and automation solutions, and reflecting the wide Metso installed-base know-how.
Established in 1974, PT. Pelita Cengkareng Paper produces kraftliner, corrugating medium, duplex board, chipboard and wrapping paper. The current annual production capacity is 190,000 tonnes. Through expansion in a new site at Subang the annual capacity will increase to 540,000 tonnes.
