Sweco's industry consultants have signed a major contract from Stora Enso in connection to its investment in a new paper machine in Stora Enso Poland Ostroka Mill. The contract is worth approximately SEK 50 million.
Stora Enso is investing EUR 285 million in a new paper machine in order to increase the production of paper for corrugated packaging products at the pulp and paper mill in north western Poland. Recycled fibres will be used as raw materials in the new paper machine that will have an annual capacity of about 455 000 tonnes.
"We are pleased to have received this contract and that Stora Enso has chosen us in order to increase production capacity at the Ostroka Mill. This is also a sign that the market is beginning to turn upwards again after a long period of low industrial investments, particularly in the European based pulp and paper industry. This is the second major contract we have signed in a short time," says Kari Harsunen, President of Sweco Industry.
The scope of the work includes process, layout, piping, electrical, automation, HVAC and fire protection engineering and will be mainly executed by Sweco Industry in Finland but also partly by local sub engineering companies in Poland. The overall implementation of the project will take about two years.
