Rottneros Taking 10 Days of Maintenance Downtime at Vallvik Pulp Mill
May 26, 2010 - Rottneros said that production at its Vallvik pulp mill (Sweden) is being stopped for in total about ten days for unscheduled maintenance work on the evaporation plant.
"We had to take an unforeseen production stop of the mill now, and expect to lose about 6000 ton of UBK/NBSK [pulp], Rottneros CEO, Ole Terland told PaperAge.
Rottneros also said that it will invest SEK 77 million in the evaporation plant this fall, with the upgrades to be completed during the mill's annual maintenance downtime.
Vallvik Mill produces two grades of long-fiber sulphate pulp: fully bleached sulphate pulp, ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) and unbleached sulphate pulp, UKP (Unbleached Kraft Pulp). The mill has a permit to produce 220,000 tonnes. In 2009 193,400 tonnes were produced.
