Bellmer Vaahto performs rebuild for Union Paper Mills, U.A.E.
Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery has got off to a great start: At the end of January 2013, shortly after taking over the Vaahto group’s paper machine business, Bellmer Vaahto received a substantial order from Union Paper Mills in the United Arab Emirates.

Union Paper Mills was established in 1987 and is a leading manufacturer of recycled paper-based packaging papers in the U.A.E. In order to cope with booming demand for packaging papers in its domestic market, Union Paper Mills opted for a greenfield second paper mill in Abu Dhabi’s ICAD-3 industrial area.

The customer sought to purchase a used paper machine, and found what it was looking for in Finland. This machine, originally built for the production of sack paper, will now be modified and rebuilt for the manufacture of testliner and fluting materials. Union Paper Mills decided to work with Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery, thanks to a positive experience with the Vaahto team led by Jyrki Strengell during the PM # 2 rebuild project in Dubai.

Now the same team will operate under the name of Bellmer Vaahto on the Abu Dhabi project. Specific know-how in board machine building and headboxes was also an important and decisive factor in the choice of supplier. Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery’s scope of supply comprises the short circulation cycle and the headbox, upgrade of the wire section, and an increase in drying capacity through the addition of two new dryer groups.

The highly diversified scope of supply serves to demonstrate the synergies between Bellmer and its new Finnish subsidiary.
