Valmet will deliver two chip washing and defibrator systems to Siempelkamp as part of Siempelkamp’s panelboard plant deliveries to two different end customers, one in Europe and one in Asia. The start-ups of the systems are planned for 2023 and the beginning of 2024.

The orders were included in Valmet’s orders received as of Q1 2022. The value of the orders will not be disclosed.

“Siempelkamp is well known as a supplier to the panelboard industry, and we are pleased to once again deliver defibrator systems to them. Together with Valmet’s market leading defibrator systems, Siempelkamp can offer high performing complete fibreboard plants to their end customers,” says Jonas Franzén, sales manager of fibre processing business unit in Valmet’s Pulp and Energy business line.

Valmet reports that its delivery will include all main machinery of the second-generation EVO 64 Defibrator system and chip washing, related motors, a control system as well as installation and start-up advisory.

Valmet’s defibrators are equipped with a patented grinding house. This feature enables both energy and resin savings, providing low operating costs and resulting in an environmentally friendly defibrator system for the production of high-quality wood fibres to medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and high-density fibreboard (HDF).
