Södra Begins Construction of Additional Pulp Storage Tower at Väro Mill in Sweden
Södra Cell Värö produces 700,000 tonnes per year of high quality totally chlorine-free softwood pulp. An additional pulp storage tower is being constructed, which should be ready by the fourth quarter of 2019.
Jan. 8, 2019 - Södra announced that construction of an additional pulp storage tower has begun at its Värö pulp mill in Sweden. The additional pulp storage tower will be situated between the fibre line and the drying machine.
Jonas Eriksson, Värö's Mill Manager says the new tower will give the fibre line extra availability and the leeway to increase the mill's production capacity further when needed.
“This will give us increased flexibility, we will not have to stop production to perform some of the planned maintenance or if we ever incur a minor problem at the drying machine in the future.”
Södra expects the project to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2019.
Södra Cell Värö produces 700,000 tonnes per year of high quality totally chlorine-free softwood pulp. The mill is also a supplier of both electricity and district heating producing 1.6 TWh of energy annually.
Södra, with headquarters in Vaxjo, Sweden, produces market pulp, wood products and biofuels. The company operates three pulp mills in Sweden (Mörrum, Mönsterås and Värö.) with a total capacity of 1.6 million tonnes per year. Sodra produces both softwood and hardwood pulp — 90% softwood and 10% hardwood. To learn more, please visit: www.sodra.com.
