Start of pulp mill in Svetlogorsk could be delayed

07 Nov 2017 − 

Following massive delays and repeated postponement of commissioning, Belarusian pulp mill in Svetlogorsk may still not be able to start operation this year.

According to the latest announcement by Belarusian state-owned operator Bellesbumprom the mill was scheduled to start off on 7 November 2017. Various problems concerning cabling, water pipes as well as waste management amongst others, could however lead to a renewed delay, report Belorusian media, who do not expect the mill to start up before 2018. The site was originally supposed to start operating in October 2015.

When started up, the mill is supposed to manufacture up to 400.000 t of pulp, 300,000 t of which are to be exported.
