Last October saw the start of the expansion of the Södra pulp mill in Värö. Södra, Valmet and NCC took part in the ceremony to herald the start of construction, an initiative in which Södra has invested more than four billion Swedish kronor.
The Board of Directors at Södra made a decision in February to invest four billion Swedish kronor in a massive expansion of the pulp mill in Värö, north of Varberg. The Land and Environment Court has now given Södra permission to begin the actual construction work. The expanded mill is scheduled to start up in the autumn of 2016. This expansion involves increasing the current production capacity of 425,000 tonnes to 700,000 tonnes of pulp per year. This will make the mill one of the biggest in the world in terms of softwood sulphate pulp production.
Valmet and NCC have been selected as the main suppliers for the project. Valmet will be supplying a new continuous digester and upgrades to wood handling, the fibre line, evaporation plant, soda recovery boiler, causticisation, flashdryer, drying machine and baling. NCC has been commissioned to carry out the groundwork, civil engineering works and construction works, and was represented at the ceremony by Nils Bjelm, Civil Engineering Segment Manager at NCC Construction Sweden.
The expansion of Södra Cell in Värö will create 400 FTEs over a period of ten years. The investment will also create new job opportunities at the mill and 220 job opportunities within surrounding businesses.
