Finland's packaging paper and board company Metsä Board has announced its plan to increase output at the Husum pulp and board mill in Sweden. The company started a pre-engineering study to evaluate the possibility for increasing the annual production capacity of folding boxboard machine BM 1 by approximately 200,000 t.

"The planned investment would further strengthen Husum BM 1's position as the biggest folding boxboard machine in Europe," Metsä Board said. The pre-engineering phase also included an evaluation of the mill port's capacity for increased volumes of raw materials and finished goods, the company added.

The final investment decision is expected this summer. If the investment is implemented, Metsä would start ramping up additional capacity in 2023.
