Customer: Stora Enso’s Skoghall mill
Description: Valmet will supply a board machine rebuild to Stora Enso’s Skoghall mill in Sweden. The main goal of the project is to increase the production capacity of the board machine 8 (BM8).
Details: In October 2021, Stora Enso announced the investment to expand the board production at Skoghall. Following the investment, the annual packaging board production at Skoghall can be increased by approximately 100,000 tonnes, to a total capacity of the mill exceeding 900,000 tonnes, subject to environmental permits. The project will be implemented through debottlenecking of one of the existing production lines, and executed in two steps, utilizing the scheduled maintenance breaks.
Valmet’s delivery in the two-step project will include upgrades in the stock preparation system and multiple improvements in several parts of the board machine. All the machines and equipment included in Valmet’s delivery will be delivered installed.
Start up: The two-step project is planned to be completed at the second half of 2023.
