The delivery comprises three HGC pumps, two of which are equipped with 4350 kW, two-pole 4000 volt variable-speed motors. The third pump set is driven by a turbine, also rated 4350 kW. The flow rate of each pump set is around 1011 cubic metres per hour and the discharge head is slightly more than 1400 metres. All wetted parts are made of chrome steel.

The new production unit is an expansion of the existing facility which is already equipped with KSB pumps. It will increase the annual cellulose production from 1.75 million to 3.05 million tonnes.
