International Paper restarts PM 3 at its Kwidzyn mill in Poland

11 Jul 2018 − 

115,000 tpy of newsprint and kraft paper capacity back on stream

International Paper today announced that the company successfully restarted its newsprint and kraft paper machine PM 3 at its Kwidzyn mill in Poland during the weekend of 30 June.

The machine had been damaged in a fire at the mill earlier this year. International Paper said that the machine was fully operational making the same newsprint and kraft paper grades as in the past.

PM 3, which has an annual output capacity of 115,000 t, had been out of operation since the fire on 16 March this year. The company said that the damage was mainly related to electrical cabling, but not to the systems for actual paper production.
