Finnish company Valmet has received a new order to provide automation systems and other key technologies for the Chinese private joint-stock enterprise Henan Longyuan Paper.

Neither company have not disclosed the value of this order. However, the Finnish company said that this deal was received in the first quarter of 2023.

Valmet’s systems and technologies will support the enterprise’s new testliner line, PM7, at its mill in Henan province of China.

Henan Longyuan Paper vice-general manager Yuzhou Wang said: “The good cooperation with Valmet started with the headbox installation project for PM6.

“Due to Valmet’s many references from centre press and automation controls in high-speed paper machines, we decided to go with Valmet again for the further expansion of production capacity.

“Valmet’s intelligent technology operating with low-carbon emissions fits perfectly together with Henan Longyan Paper’s efficient and environmentally friendly concept, contributing to the local economy. We are looking forward to collaborating with Valmet again.”
