The installation is scheduled for the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.

“Since we are very content with our existing Valmet supplied defibrators in all our sites, we are looking forward to running the latest generation of defibrators in our new site in Gromadka,” says Uwe Lange, CTO at STEICO.

“We are very pleased that we have been trusted to deliver this order. STEICO and Valmet already have a strong cooperation in the service business for the existing lines, and now we are taking the collaboration to the next level,” said Leif Sundberg, sales manager, Valmet.

With the supply of two EVO 46 defibrator systems to STEICO, Valmet says it further strengthens its position as a supplier of high performing fibreboard and insulation board front-end systems.

STEICO was founded in 1986 and is a world market leader for ecological wood fibre insulation materials complemented by its integrated timber construction system.
