This building was built in 1989 to support PM5. Yes the largest paper machine in the world needs another large building to support it.
The TMP building housed five production lines. One chips washing line. Two independent pulp production lines for refining, screening, cleaning and bleaching/washing. Finally there were two lines of chemical pulp refining.
The sole production on the site was coated paper for magazines but this building was adaptable to create different types of pulp if required.
Other than one large window in the compressor hall the building was pitch black which was not the easiest to shoot in. Luckily we had a large LED bank which came in very handy.
The best part of the building was to be found on the top floor where we found two pulp lines with two large roller machines.
This brings us to the end of the Usines Béghin site tour. I hope you have enjoyed. Links to other parts of the site are below.
