SPEEDY START for Bellmer Vaahto
Article paperi ja puu No. 03 2013

Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery Oy started its operation in a speed after the acquisition of project business of the former company Vaahto Paper Technology. Union Paper Mills from United Arab Emirates (UAE) placed an order for rebuild of complete paper machine in the beginning of the year, already before the official start of the new company. Dismantled sack paper machine PM6 from UPM Tervasaari will be assembled in Abu Dhabi to produce test liner and fluting in basis weight range from 90 to 180 gsm.

Union Paper Mills is founded on 1987 in Dubai. The Company is leading manufacturer of packaging papers in UAE.

Finnish paper machine PM6 in Tervasaari has been dismantled already 2009. Union Paper Mills purchased the machine to be assembled in Dubai in connection to an existing paper mill. International economic crisis and development in paper market caused changes in plan and the project was put on hold.

Now the paper machine has been decided to be moved to Abu Dhabi and the new company Al Dhafra Paper Manufacturing Company LLC was founded to invest in a greenfield paper mill.
Union Paper Mills is familiar company for Vaahto.

“Even though the realization of the PM6 project was eventually stopped, at the time Union Paper Mills made anyway an order from Vaahto for rebuild of paper machine in Dubai. We supplied there for example our first spray sizer application in co-operation with V.I.B.” says Mr. Jyrki Strengell, the Managing Director of Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery Oy from Hollola.

The scope of supply for Bellmer Vaahto to Abu Dhabi includes equipment of approach flow, headbox, wire section rebuild and increasing the drying capacity in two drying groups. Bellmer delivers size press from Germany. Project management and rest of the order is delivered from Finland.

Rebuilt and repaired paper machine will start in the first half of 2015.
According to Jyrki Strengell the delivery is progressing as scheduled.
