The shutdown for maintenance work and to implement investments approved for Vallvik Mill, which lasted for a period of almost three weeks, has now come to an end and production is back on track. The two investments agreed at the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 respectively have been connected and put into operation. These investments involved replacing the remaining old part of the evaporation plant and also substantially improving air regulation in the recovery boiler. Their total cost amounted to around SEK 130m.

“We have now eliminated production bottlenecks, thereby increasing the capacity of the mill from 200,000 to 220,000 tonnes per year,” says Robert Jensen, MD of Vallvik Mill. The investments will also result in reduced emissions.

“It is particularly gratifying”, continues Jensen, “that all work during the shutdown, which employed almost 600 people went according to plan and that costs were within budget. We will now prove that we can supply what we have promised and look forward to the next stage of our development at the Vallvik factory”.
