Finnish industrial company Valmet will deliver a new gravity feed chipper to the Sappi Ngodwana mill in South Africa.

Valmet‘s Camura GS1050 chipper will help increase chipping capacity at the mill while minimising wood losses. It will be delivered and installed at the facility in May 2018, with the start-up slated for the beginning of June 2018.

“South Africa has been a successful market area for Valmet’s wood handling business and with this delivery we continue our positive trend,” says Jussi Taskinen, manager R&D, Product Portfolio & Strategy at Valmet. “The Valmet sales team concentrated on optimising the solution for a demanding raw material and minimising the payback time for Sappi.”

The order was booked into Valmet’s second quarter 2017 orders received. The value of the order is not disclosed.
