"Due to unaffordability of operations in the current energy environment, temporary downtime has been initiated at the Bruck paper mill in Austria," says Norske Skog.
Publication paper manufacturer Norske Skog has temporarily halted production at the company's Bruck mill in Austria. According to a company announcement, the downtime is due to the challenging energy market situation which is making production at the mill non viable at the moment.
"Although we have secured parts of the mill’s energy supply in March, the energy prices we presently experience make operations at Bruck unsustainable," says Sven Ombudstvedt, President and CEO of Norske Skog.
Norske Skog Bruck houses two machines with a capacity to produce 120,000 tpy of newsprint and 260,000 tpy of coated magazine paper (LWC).
