Italy’s Burgo group has apparently changed its idea on what is the necessary downtime at the group’s Tolmezzo mill in Italy. Following differing initial announcements Burgo has temporarily halted paper production at the Tolmezzo mill run by its specialty paper subsidiary Mosaico. According to a company spokesperson, both paper machines have been idled from 19 until 22 September. Paper production has been resumed again according to plan as of 23 September, the company spokesperson confirmed. The Tolmezzo mill can produce up to 180,000 tpy of woodfree uncoated paper and machine glazed (MG) kraft paper.
Previously, Burgo had filed for short-time working allowances and temporary economic unemployment state support for the mill’s entire staff of 290 for the period from 5 September to 2 October. However, Burgo had originally planned to maintain regular paper production and only suspend pulp production and other highly energy-intensive operations at the Tolmezzo mill.
