Stora Enso to Convert PM 2 at Anjala to Book Paper
Jan. 10, 2008 - Stora Enso said that will invest EUR 29 million to convert a coated magazine paper machine (PM 2) at its Anjala Mill in Finland to produce coated and uncoated book paper.
The project is scheduled to start in January 2008 and be completed by October 2008.
The grade change will increase the mill's book paper capacity by 65,000 tons per year (tpy) to 320,000 tpy and enable Anjala Mill to focus on the book paper business, Stora Enso said.
Following the machine's conversion, coated magazine paper production will decrease by 155,000 tpy, the company added.
As earlier announced, Stora Enso intends to shut down Anjala Mill's PM 1, which currently produces 120,000 tpy of book paper, in November 2008.
Following the machine project, the Anjala mill's total annual production capacity will be 435,000 tons of book paper and improved newsprint.
