Shoe press TURBOPress for Licancel, Chile
Our Spanish subsidiary Bellmer Ibérica has passed another landmark, with the order for the supply of the first TURBOPress shoe press to South America. Licancel pulp mill forms part of Arauco (Cellulosa Arauco y Constitución S.A.).
One of the largest forest products companies in Latin America, Arauco has operations in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
Pulp production is a key business area for the company: with an output of 3.2 million tons/year of bleached and unbleached kraft pulp, Arauco is the second largest producer of market pulp worldwide.
Pulp from Arauco is used for the manufacture of a great variety of papers, including printing and writing, tissue, packaging etc. Arauco insists on the best available technology on the market for its worldwide operations.

In awarding the TURBOPress shoe press order to Bellmer, the aim is to secure a sustainable increase in the dry contents achieved in the press section, and thereby to reduce energy consumption in the dryer section.

The scope of supply also included engineering and project management, and installation supervision. Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter 2011.
The TURBOPress is the optimum technology
for Licancel’s high quality pulp
