The delivery is part of Domtar’s USD 160 million project to re-purpose the A64 paper machine. The rebuilt machine is scheduled to begin operation in the third quarter of 2016. This order is included in Valmet’s first quarter 2015 orders received. The value of Valmet’s delivery will not be disclosed.
