Siemens Equips Chinese Paper Board Greenfield Mill

Shandong Bohui Paper Industry Co., Ltd., China, selected Siemens to provide drive technology for its new board paper mill at Dafeng, Yancheng city, in Jiangsu province, East China. The new mill is scheduled to produce 750,000 tons board paper per year based on wood pulp. With the new manufacturing base, Bohui Paper will become China's biggest board paper mill. The project has a total volume of around 3.8 million euros and is scheduled for completion by end of 2012.

Shandong Bohui Paper Industry Co., Ltd is engaged in the research, development, manufacture, and sale of paper products and paper pulp in China. To increase the production capacity of high-end packaging boards the company is to build a new mill in Yancheng. Siemens will provide the motors for the new board paper machine and for two winder machines. They are supplied with power via power inverters and rectifiers of the type Sinamics S120. A Sipaper Drives Controller based on Simatic PCS7 is responsible for open-loop and closed-loop control of the machines. The board paper mill will thus have a uniform operator control and visualization platform for all the drive and automation equipment. All together Siemens will install 205 motors, 207 drive loops, and automation and control systems. The company will also be responsible for the engineering and commissioning of the supplied equipment.
