PÖYRY PLC Press release 11 June 2014 at 10:00 am.
Stora Enso has awarded Pöyry with the assignment for the engineering and site
services for the pulp mill rebuild and paper machine conversion project at its
Varkaus Mill in Finland. The assignment relates to the pulp mill rebuild,
paper machine conversion, upgrading of existing utilities, and includes detail
and civil engineering as well as site services as an option. The assignment is
a continuation of the pre-feasibility and the feasibility studies performed by
Pöyry during 2013.
The conversion work is expected to be undertaken mainly during autumn 2015 and
the board machine is scheduled to start up during the fourth quarter of 2015.
The current 280 000 tonnes per year uncoated fine paper machine is planned to
cease production by the end of August 2015. Following the conversion into a
board machine, Varkaus Mill's capacity will be about 390 000 tonnes per year
of kraftliner and white top liner and 310 000 tonnes of unbleached kraft

and Pöyry, and strengthens Pöyry's position as the world's leading pulp and
paper engineering consultancy, having delivered projects for 80% of the
world's major pulp and paper companies", says Nicholas Oksanen, President of
Pöyry's Pulp and Paper Global Competence Line.
