AUSTRALIA - Metso and Amcor Packaging (Australia) Pty Ltd have executed an agreement for the supply of mill maintenance services for Amcor’s Botany mill B9 board making line in New South Wales, Australia.
The B9 containerboard production line at the Botany mill will be supplied by Metso and it is scheduled to start up in mid 2012. This main order for the line was received from Amcor and published in 2008.
With this multi-year mill maintenance agreement, which became effective as of 12 July 2011, Metso will assume full responsibility for the establishment of maintenance operations, mill maintenance services and management of improvement projects for the stock and paper production facilities as well as the mill utilities at the Botany mill.
The value of the agreement will not be disclosed.
The Metso mill maintenance model optimizes the use of proactive, condition-based maintenance and is based on Metso's streamlined reliability centered maintenance (RCM). The model ensures the highest possible equipment efficiency and cost optimization.
