Jan. 15, 2007 - Metso Paper said it will supply Stora Enso’s Varkaus mill in Finland with an extensive rebuild of the mill's PM 3 fine paper machine. Metso will also modernize the PM 1 at Stora Enso’s Nymölla, Sweden mill.

The scope of the PM 3 project includes a wire section modernization, modifications to the press and dryer sections, a new winder, and a rewinder. PM 3 has a wire width of 8,470 mm and a speed of 1,200 m/min.

At Nymölla, Metso Paper will supply a headbox dilution system for PM 1.
