Andritz was selected to supply the complete Fiberline from the digester to finished bales of market pulp as well as the White Liquor Plant for the Veracel greenfield kraft pulp mill on an EPC basis. When completed in mid-2005, Veracel will be the largest single-line market pulp mill in the world at 900,000 admt/a. Veracel is a joint venture between Stora Enso Oyj and Aracruz Celulose S.A.

The Veracel Mill, now under construction near Eunapolis in Brazil’s Bahia state, will produce bleached eucalyptus (plantation) market pulp. The schedule is 22 months from contract to mill start-up. Andritz will be responsible for Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) for the Fiberline, White Liquor Plant, and Pulp Drying/Baling Plant.

The new Fiberline from Andritz will be the world’s largest. It will produce 900,000 admt/a of high-brightness (ISO 92), high-strength eucalyptus pulp.
