International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Stora Enso to optimize the fiberline at the Enocell pulp mill in Uimaharju, Finland.
This will help the customer meet the growing demand for non-bleached renewable packaging materials while at the same time reducing its ecological footprint.
ANDRITZ technologies will provide the customer with the required flexibility. In parallel, operational costs will be optimized through improved operational reliability and minimimized chemical, freshwater and energy consumption.
This order shows the solid business relationship between ANDRITZ and Stora Enso and supports Stora Enso’s growth strategy in the sustainable packaging sector. The modernization will be carried out gradually with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2024.
The Enocell pulp mill in eastern Finland is part of Stora Enso’s Biomaterials division. It produces softwood and hardwood pulp with an annual production capacity of 630,000 tonnes. The site was founded in 1967 and also includes a sawmill.
