The SCA Obbola pulp mill’s upgraded fiberline, was started up in September 2021, according to plan. Valmet’s delivery is part of SCA’s investment project to increase the annual production of Kraftliner in the Obbola mill from the current 450,000 tonnes to 725,000 tonnes per year. With this investment, SCA Obbola will meet the increased demand for sustainable packaging.
Valmet will supply a high-capacity OptiWin Pro winder to Norske Skog’s Golbey mill in France. The main target of Norske Skog Golbey is to have one winder to handle the 550,000-tonne capacity of the converted high-speed and high-capacity paper machine PM 1, following the paper machine conversion from production of newsprint to production of recycled containerboard. The start-up of the winder is scheduled for 2023.
