An explosion in the recovery boiler on 21 January 2014 has disrupted production at Stora Enso's Swedish Skoghall mill. Today the situation was still unchanged, a Stora Enso spokesperson told EUWID.

According to the information, Stora Enso had stopped production of NBSK. The board machines KM 7 and KM 8 were only running alternately. It is currently still unclear when production will be back to normal. The spokesperson was unable to disclose details about the extent of the production loss.

At the Skoghall mill, Stora Enso runs two board machines with a combined capacity of 800,000 t of board (liquid packaging board, containerboard) and white top kraftliner. The mill also produces 350,000 t of NBSK and 270,000 t of CTMP.
