In the paper and board industry, electricity generation plays a vital role, relying on diverse sources such as coal, natural gas, or biomass. This power is crucial for operating essential equipment and machinery. In some cases, the electricity produced is then sold back to the grid – making paper and board mills energy self-sufficient – reducing the reliance on external sources of power.

Conveyor systems are vital components in paper and board mills, facilitating the efficient transportation of raw materials and finished products. While some mills already achieve energy self-sufficiency, the integration of equipment that further minimises on-site power consumption leads to significant cost reductions.

TECO Australia and New Zealand offers cutting-edge motor and drive solutions designed for a wide array of industries, with a particular focus on energy efficiency and durability.
