Mercer Stendal, subsidiary of Canada's Mercer Internationa, is accelerating the implementation of the Stendal740 capacity expansion project at its pulp mill in Arneburg, Germany. First announced in March 2018, the project aims to increase annual production capacity of northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) pulp at the mill from currently 675,000 t to 740,000 t.

The expansion project has been in implementation phase since the beginning of 2020. Several sub-projects will be prepared in the coming months and integrated at the time of scheduled annual maintenance and repair downtime at the site, according to Mercer.

The last major measures are expected to be completed during the annual maintenance shutdown in 2022.
