Double A is a leading pulp and paper maker in Thailand. The new paper mill was built at a brownfield site, located near their existing mills in Prachinburi.  The mill produces uncoated wood free paper.

With a strict scope, timetable and budget set right from the start, the challenge was clear: Pöyry needed to deliver top-notch technical support to ensure that the productivity and quality targets for the mill were met.

In addition to project management and co-ordination, Pöyry’s tasks included basic and detailed engineering for the new paper machine and stock preparation, and supervising the installation and start-up phases of the new paper machine line.

Pöyry had also an active role in procurement and project planning. Step-by-step throughout the project, regular meetings were held between Pöyry and Double A to ensure timely and reasonable progress. Pöyry’s global resource base was used efficiently and brought benefits to the project. For example, while the unit in Vantaa, Finland, worked on standards and calculations, the unit in China designed layouts, process flowsheets and detailed 3D-models.

We received significant benefits from Pöyry’s past experience executing similar projects. Besides ensuring that everything went ahead as planned, they shared their know-how and experience when it came to dealing with paper machine manufacturers and setting up mills – Double A, PM3 Project Manager.
