The scope of supply for the PM7 also includes a steam-heated hot air dryer for contactless drying following the surface treatment as well as a drying-hood in the new after-dryer section.

The relocation of the production line for MG paper from Tervasaari to Skärblacka will be project managed by Voith, which will also be responsible for the entire logistics, the basic and detail engineering and the disassembly, installation and commissioning of the production line. Under the contract, Voith will carry out a safety audit on the existing machine, prepare a master plan for preserving and repairing parts to be moved and refurbish corroded components.
