Stora Enso has confirmed its recently published plans to convert its Oulu fine paper mill in Finland into a kraftliner mill.

The company said it would convert PM 7 to primary-fibre kraftliner production and close PM 6 and the sheeting plant. At the same time, plans to convert one machine to kraft board production were dropped.

At the end of September 2020, both machines will cease production of woodfree coated paper. Conversion of PM 7 is scheduled to take three months, so kraftliner production would be ramped up at the end of 2020. The machine will have a capacity to produce 450,000 t of brown and white-top kraftliner per year.
