Fibria, a Brazilian forestry company and the world’s leading eucalyptus pulp producer, recently announced the contracting of important service and equipment packages for the Horizonte 2 Project, which will expand production capacity at its Três Lagoas Unit located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

Fibria recently negotiated the contracting of infrastructure, automatic valves (Flowserve), centrifugal pumps (Sulzer), turbogenerators (Siemens), construction management (Time Now), the entire power transmission and distribution system (Asea Brown Boveri – ABB), which includes the primary substation, engines, motor control center (MCC) and transformers, and Balance of Plant – BOP (Pöyry). The company most recently hired Andritz Group to supply a package comprising the wood chip yard, fiber line (cooking, washing and bleaching), drying machine, recovery boiler, evaporation and causticizing processes and lime kiln.

The Horizonte 2 Project involves the construction, at the Três Lagoas Unit, of a second production line with annual pulp capacity of 1.75 million tons. After the expansion, whose startup is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Mato Grosso do Sul unit will reach full annual production capacity of 3.05 million tons of pulp. As a result, Fibria’s total annual pulp production capacity, considering all of its units, will increase from the current 5.3 million tons to over 7 million tons.
