A SEK540 million investment in Munksund, Sweden, will enable SCA to increase its total annual kraftliner capacity to 415,000 tonnes from the current level of 360,000 tonnes.
Jan Johansson, SCA’s president and CEO, comments: “The investment facilitates increased production of White-Top Kraftliner, a strong speciality paper for the corrugated board industry which is experiencing a high growth rate.”
The bulk of the spend – SEK 400m – will be used to upgrade the paper machine at Munksund. The remainder will finance replacement of the pressure vessel in the soda recovery boiler, which will boost heat recovery and enable increased future output. The upgrade is expected to be completed during 2013.
