Stora Enso has entrusted the leading full-line supplier Voith with the conversion of a former paper machine. The machine at the northern Finnish site in Oulu previously produced coated graphic papers. After the successful conversion, the machine will produce high-quality folding boxboard and coated kraft back (CKB). With a production volume of 750,000 tons per year, the plant will be the largest board machine in Europe. Start-up is scheduled for early 2025.
It was important to Stora Enso that the converted line offers optimal production efficiency while meeting the highest environmental standards, especially excellent heat recovery. With the converted line, the company can achieve the highest production capacity in Europe for high-quality packaging made of folding boxboard and CKB.
For ideal energy efficiency, Voith experts are also extensively rebuilding the existing dryer section.
