Within the space of a month, Iggesund Paperboard has implemented an extensive rebuild of the wet end of its board machine number 2 at Iggesund, Sweden. The €74M project also includes improving water treatment at the mill and installing a new lime kiln. The aim was not to increase production but rather to improve quality.
The rebuild of Iggesund’s most important board machine, 270m long, began in September and the machine was successfully restarted in early October..
“Invercote has many advantages,” explains mill director Staffan Jonsson. “But in the eyes of our customers the most important benefit is that we maintain high and consistent quality – that they can trust that the next pallet of paperboard will behave precisely like the last one when it ends up in the printing press. This rebuild has given us excellent opportunities to further develop Invercote in that direction.”
He adds: “The rebuild is important for our future competitiveness. We prioritize the qualities our customers want – quality consistency and a predictable and preferably stunning end result. We are very happy with what has been achieved and are looking forward to continuing to develop Invercote.”
