Order from JK Paper

In an independent development, ABB also won an order worth more than $15 million to supply integrated automation and power equipment and related engineering and commissioning services to JK Paper Ltd for its expansion project. The order is for capacity enhancement for one of its units, JK Paper Mills. Located at Rayagada in Orissa, this mill annually produces 125,000 tonnes of branded printing, writing and copier paper.

ABB's delivery for the mill will help to improve its overall production efficiency and capacity. While maximizing energy efficiency and ensuring a reliable source of power, it will also help conservation of energy and water. ABB will deliver energy efficient drive systems for the new paper machine, standalone drives and motors, and intelligent motor control centers (MCCs). The scope of supply also includes electrical infrastructure equipment such as transformers, transmission lines, other power equipment, and power management system for the pulp mill and paper machine.
