LSI successfully completed an $8MM engineering and procurement effort to convert a newsprint machine to Kraft paper. The project included a major winder rebuild at the same time. The LSI team provided 90% of the outsourced engineering which was over 43,000 effort hours in less than 10 months and procured $3MM worth of equipment and hardware to complete this extraordinary task. Engineering for process calculations, mechanical and piping design was the largest required effort on this project; however, Electrical and Controls Engineering played an important role as well. The Kraft paper machine started up on time and was producing premium grade paper right out of the gate!
