BHM INGENIEURE is realizing another project with WEPA Group. The company, headquartered in Germany, is one of the three leading hygiene paper manufacturers in Europe and is now increasing its production capacity at its Brindgend site in Wales.
BHM has been commissioned with the overall design for the new tissue paper production line. In addition to the heart of the project, the new PM2 "NEPTUNE" paper machine, this also includes auxiliary equipment such as pulp storage and pulp dissolving facilities as well as pipe bridges and outdoor facilities.
Construction started at the end of September 2020, and the new PM2 is scheduled to go into operation as early as spring 2022. It will produce around 65,000 tons of tissue paper per year.
Special challenges of the project:
In addition, the project must overcome all current difficulties surrounding CoVid-19 and the upcoming Brexit.
BHM has been supporting WEPA in this project since the search for a location, has worked out the strategic and long-term plant layout together with WEPA and has also completed the entire approval process with the authorities.
Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf has inaugurated the new energy facilities. The Future Energy Plant is the largest project in the history of the paper mill in Upper Austria.
BHM INGENIEURE was responsible for the submission planning, polishing planning, technical building equipment and fire protection planning.
At a total cost of 134 million euros, the entire energy generation system of the factory was modernized, a new recovery boiler was installed, as well as a new steam storage tank and a new steam turbine. In addition, a number of auxiliary plants were adapted.
In the future, 40,000 tons of CO2 per year can be saved. Almost 100 percent of the heat requirement can be covered by biomass which is produced during pulp production. About 55 percent of the electricity demand can be covered with the new plant.
BHM INGENIEURE has successfully completed the second project with Sofidel Group in the USA. The brand new paper mill in Inola, Oklahoma, has been inaugurated.
On a 240 acres site a plant with two paper machines and 14 converting lines was built – for a total production capacity of 120,000 tons per year.
BHM was part of the project right from the start with site development and provided consulting and design services. Read more about “The Birth of a Paper Mill” in the latest issue of Tissue 360°.

In high alpine terrain at over 1,800 meters above sea level, the largest conversion work to date has begun on the Spullersee power plant. The plant in Vorarlberg is almost 100 years old and is used by the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) to generate environmentally friendly traction current.
The costs for the modernization amount to around 31 million euros. The ground-breaking ceremony took place on July 2, 2020. BHM INGENIEURE Linz is responsible in a planning consortium with IGT for submission planning, tendering and implementation planning.
The old penstocks will be replaced by a new, 1,460 meter long, buried steel penstock with a diameter of 1.1 meter. Work is also being carried out on the power plant itself, including the generators and the control system.
A particular challenge of the work is that it has to be carried out in up to 40° steep, inaccessible terrain. When the project is completed in 2022, the power plant will have a capacity of 36 megawatts (MW).
The Göweil company, specialized in agricultural machinery, is building a new production site in Rainbach im Mühlkreis, Upper Austria. The official ground-breaking ceremony on June 5th 2020 was delayed due to the corona crisis. Construction works are already in full swing. They started in April.
