Projects

  • Kruger Trois-Rivières S.E.CPM Transformation

    Kruger Trois-Rivières S.E.C – PM Transformation

    YEAR:

    2016-2017

    LOCATION:

    Trois-Rivières, Québec

    PROJECT:

    The project consists on the conversion of the Paper Machine No. 10 to launch the production of XTR, a new grade of 100% recycled lightweight and high-strength linerboard. Representing an investment of $250 million, the project generated 700,000 hours of work over a period of 12 months to convert the PM10 and build a new “Old Corrugated Container” plant (OCC).

    LNA has extensive experience in developing and managing effective, comprehensive and successful shutdowns. That is why we were requested to provide constructability review and manage all the construction activities for the OCC plant & PM10 conversion. We understand the paper business and think that it is imperative that the shutdowns are carried out quickly and effectively to minimize negative business impacts.

  • Kruger Products L.P.Crabtree TM 8 Project

    Kruger Products L.P. – Crabtree TM 8 Project

    YEAR:

    2016-2017

    LOCATION:

    Crabtree, Québec

    PROJECT:

    Kruger Products L.P installed a tissue paper machine at its Crabtree Plant, in the Lanaudière region. The tissue paper machine and all its ancillary equipment were acquired by Kruger from Lincoln Paper and Tissue paper plant in Maine.

    LNA’s mandate is to dismantle the existing tissue paper machine and equipment at Lincoln, in the USA and manage the transportation to Crabtree in Canada. LNA is also responsible for the construction management and constructability of the PM building, duplicating the layout in Lincoln; plus the parent roll storage and pulp preparation buildings, which are connected to an existing plant.

    The project will increase the Plant’s overall production capacity by approximately 20,000 metric tonnes annually.

  • Fortress Specialty Cellulose Inc.Thurso Mill Project

    Fortress Specialty Cellulose Inc. – Thurso Mill Project

    YEAR:

    2011-2012

    LOCATION:

    Thurso, Québec

    PROJECT:

    Fortress Paper Ltd., a producer of security and specialty papers, after their acquisition of a northern bleached hardwood kraft (NBHK) mill in Thurso, Quebec, intends to “convert the mill into a high quality specialty cellulose (dissolving pulp) operation and to construct a new cogeneration facility” which will produce green electricity.

    The specialty cellulose mill was planned to have an annual production capacity of more than 200,000 metric tonnes and the project had a capital investment of approximately $153 million.

    The 15-month conversion project, was troubled by the usual construction issues and some unique hurdles. Then, an experienced and skilled LNA management team was introduced to reorganize and implement a new base plan using our project recovery process (QPRTF) and manage all the construction activities to successfully complete the conversion of the existing production of kraft paper to dissolving pulp.
