The investment will increase CTMP production capacity at the Rottneros mill by 18,000 tpy and is expected to be operational in autumn 2018.
As a next step in the capacity development of Rottneros Mill, Rottneros’ Board has granted further investments in the CTMP line. The investment, CTMP Step 2, increases capacity by approximately 18,000 tonnes per year and is expected to be operational in the fall of 2018. The investment follows the strategic development plan Agenda 500, where a first capacity-enhancing investment in the CTMP line was made in 2016. Within Agenda 500, Rottneros Mill has put into operation a bio mass boiler in the third quarter of 2017 that replaces an oil-based boiler and made the mill practically fossil-free. The expansion of the purification plant is an ongoing investment that is expected to be put into operation in 2018.
