South India's largest Kraft Paper manufacturer, Sree Sakthi Paper Mills, has completed its expansion-cum-modernisation project involving an investment of Rs 30 crore. The company has installed a 22-TPH high pressure boiler to supply steam to its paper making unit, besides commissioning a 2 MW turbine for captive power consumption. The modernisation has enhanced the company's paper production capacity by 55 tons per day or 18150 MT annually. The commissioning of the power generation plant will not only reduce the cost of paper production but will also help the company tide over crisis if there is a power shortage in future.
As part of the expansion project, the company has also commissioned a Krima dispersing unit which has enabled the company to make spec-free paper, meeting the requirement of high-end customers. The benefits of the modernization-cum-expansion would accrue in the coming quarters.
