Sappi Maastricht and the Belvédère Wijkontwikkelingsmaatschappij (Neighborhood Development Company, WOM) of the Municipality of Maastricht have signed an agreement that will finalize the sale of the southwestern part of the Maastricht paper mill site to the WOM. The sale and subsequent purchase of this land creates a win-win situation for both parties as well as to the local area and will have no negative impact on employment at the Sappi site.

Investment in Sappi Maastricht

Sappi Maastricht, specialize in making coated graphical paper and have been manufacturing on the Maas site in Maastricht for 170 years (since 1850). Due to the worldwide trend for  digitization within communications, the market for graphic paper is shrinking. In order to survive in this shrinking market and to guarantee continuity and employment, Sappi Maastricht started three years ago with the transition into luxury packaging board. This activity mainly takes place on the north side of the company site. The southwestern part is therefore less intensively used and was eligible for sale to the WOM. Ferdinand Koster, director of Sappi Maastricht commented: "This sale makes it possible for us to invest in the future of Sappi Maastricht. We will use the resources to improve internal logistics and additionally improve the sustainability of our production processes. "

Unique opportunity for the city

The purchase of the southwestern part of the Sappi site offers the municipality of Maastricht the opportunity to stretch the city center to the north and to further build on the Sphinxkwartier. Councilor Gert-Jan Krabbendam (Urban Development and WOM shareholder): "With this purchase we can fulfill the long-cherished wish of extending the Maasboulevard. By continuing the road around the Timmerfabriek, the Bassin bridge and Boschstraat will become more accessible. In this way we invest in the quality of life and attractiveness of the Sphinxkwartier."  Councilor   John Aarts (Finance and shareholder WOM) is also satisfied with the agreement:" In this way we invest twice in our city. Not only in terms of urban development, but also in the business climate and in job retention. I am delighted that Sappi is reinvesting the resources it obtains in its Maastricht mill"

New main entrance to Sappi on the north side has already been realized

During the relocation of the Noorderbrug, a new main entrance to the Sappi site has been established for freight traffic via the Commandeurslaan. The old main entrance via the small bridge on the Fransensingel will eventually be completely decommissioned to make way for the future connection between the Frontensingel and Maasboulevard.

Planning for the coming years

Sappi will relocate its activities currently taking place on the sold land to the remaining Sappi site and will also undertake new construction. They estimate that they will take approximately two years to apply for the necessary permits, the internal relocations and preparations for the delivery of the sold sites and buildings.

During this time, the WOM is making preparations for the construction of the road, the housing to be built and completion of the necessary spatial procedures. The basic principle is to coordinate both schedules as closely as possible with each other. The aim is to be able to construct the new road after about two years in combination with the construction of the tram. The housing construction is expected to take place in 2025/2026, following the construction of the road.

As part of Sappi’s global long term commitment to sustainability and the focus it has on climate action a decision has been reached to invest in a complete modernisation of boiler 11 at the Sappi Europe Gratkorn production site. This investment into state-of-the-art technology will see a shift from a coal boiler to a multi fuel boiler in two phases with the goal to finally use only sustainable and renewable fuels. “The rebuild is an important investment in our sustainable pulp and paper production and a further important contribution to climate protection. It allows Gratkorn mill to reduce its CO2 emissions by 30 % and is a big commitment to boosting the decarbonisation of our sector”, says Berry Wiersum, CEO Sappi Europe.

2020 09 07 101041

This investment is part of an overall larger scale decarbonisation strategy for Sappi Europe, which in the near term seeks to deliver a 25% specific greenhouse gas reduction by 2025. 

The chosen technology for the project will additionally allow us to sharply reduce dust and NOX emissions. 

In June 2020, Sappi Limited committed to set science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

Gratkorn is the largest production site within Sappi Europe and manufactures high quality coated woodfree paper for the printing and writing market distributing globally. Sappi has realised several investments over the years, which have kept the Gratkorn site technologically ahead with its facilities housing one of the largest and most advanced coated fine paper production lines in the world. This further investment proves Sappi steadfast commitment to not only maintaining and improving its production sites but to helping themselves and their customers on their sustainability journeys.

The rebuild is expected to be complete in late 2021.
