In October 2021, Stora Enso announced the investment to expand the board production at Skoghall. Following the investment, the annual 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 de-bottlenecking of one of the existing production lines, and executed in two steps, utilising the scheduled maintenance breaks.
“The investment strengthens Stora Enso’s capability to produce high-quality and cost-competitive consumer board grades within the growing core segments of liquid and food packaging,” says Marie Morin, Mill Director.
“We have developed the BM 8 at Skoghall with Stora Enso for a long time; Valmet completed a forming section rebuild with several steps at the same machine line in 2017-2020. We are happy to continue our cooperation in this project,” says Per Holm, Vice President, Sales, Scandinavia, Valmet.
