The company aims to reduce energy consumption and fresh water usage in the mill and improve the reliability and performance of the evaporator train.

Valmet will supply the paper manufacturer with new evaporator vessels, the component needed to upgrade the existing concentrators as well as several other smaller vessels and other miscellaneous equipment.

The upgraded evaporator train is scheduled to start operation in the fourth quarter of 2015. 

"We worked closely with Domtar to optimize the technical solution that would meet their project objectives, including providing a system that would be simpler and safer to operate," says Raymond Burelle, regional sales manager for Valmet.
