Stora Enso Langerbrugge Mill paper machine to be modified

Stora Enso will modify part of its newsprint machine 4 at 
Langerbrugge Mill in Belgium. The machine is performing 
efficiently and the quality of the paper is good. However, there 
is a problem with dust accumulating on printing plates when 
printing a high number of copies on certain printing machines. 
It has therefore been decided to modify the press section of the 
paper machine to ensure the highest quality in every respect.

Stora Enso and Metso have agreed on the modification required, 
which Metso will undertake as the supplier responsible for the 
machine. The modification will take about five weeks and is 
scheduled for early 2005. About 40 000 tonnes of production will 
be lost during the shutdown.

Langerbrugge Mill’s paper machine 4, which started up in May 
2003, is the world’s largest newsprint machine. It utilises 
exclusively recovered paper as raw material and has an annual 
production capacity of 400 000 tonnes, producing 45 g/m²
