During 2014 Papelera del Oria made two investments in their paper machine with German constructor Voith:

  • In January 2014, a new Duoformer D was installed which contributed to a much improved formation of the paper.
  • In April 2014, the conversion from a hard nip calender to a soft nip calendar, improved the surface properties and printability of the paper.

As a consequence, new paper grades were developed in the interim, including paper for shopping bags, and this subsequently contributed to increase global sales for Oria.

Certificate ISO 50001 for Energy Management

Papelera del Oria has scheduled the certification of its Energy Management system under EU norm UNE-ISO 50001 for January of 2014. The mill have been working on this project of power performance optimization (use of energy, power efficiency and power consumption) throughout 2013 and plans to proceed with the certification audit in the last days of 2013 and to finalize it in early 2014

Investment for improvement of the formation and opacity of the paper

Papelera del Oria has commissioned the German company Voith with the installation of a Duoformer D that will allow a significant improvement in both sheet formation and opacity of uncoated paper produced on paper machine No. 1. This investment was executed during the shutdown over Christmas of 2013 and it is expected will be fully operational in the middle of January of 2014
