PM 3 at Sappi’s Alfeld mill inoperative until end of July

29 May 2020 − 

The PM 3 at Sappi Europe’s Alfeld mill which was hit by a fire on 12 May will resume operation in week 31 (W/B 27 July).

The inspection and investigation of the area affected by the fire revealed that there is limited damage to the PM itself with the MG cylinder being found to be undamaged, writes Sappi. Instead the fire affected the machine hall, particularly to the mezzanine ceiling and the roof, which both are currently undergoing repairs.

The PM is planned to restart production in week 31 (W/B July 27) and paper deliveries expected to commence from the beginning of August.

In the interim period Sappi has arranged a back-up supply from its Italian Mill sites and is working in partnership with customers to ensure demands are met.
