Stora Enso inaugurates Varkaus mill; LVL production to start in June

Stora Enso has successfully converted a fine paper machine at Varkaus Mill to produce virgin-fibre-based containerboard. Stora Enso invested EUR 110 million in the conversion work, which took place in 2015. Kraftliner production began in October 2015 and full production is expected in early 2017. The capacity of the Varkaus Mill will be about 390 000 tonnes of light-weight kraftliner per year.

Moreover, Stora Enso has built a new production line in Varkaus Mill that will make wooden building elements, laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The investment of EUR 43 million will further enhance Stora Enso’s position as a global provider of high quality engineered wooden elements. The production is scheduled to begin in June 2016, and the estimated yearly capacity will be around 100 000m3.
