Metsä Fibre's Äänekoski pulp mill preparing for annual maintenance stoppage

Production will halt at the Äänekoski pulp mill to facilitate annual maintenance work during week 21. The shutting down of normal production processes will proceed starting on Saturday 18 May.

Maintenance work will be performed during the stoppage by the mill's own personnel as well as by some 550 employees of our cooperation partners.

A gradual restart of production operations will commence on Saturday 25 May. It will take about 24 hours for the mill to reach its normal production mode.
