Värö in numbers

Between autumn 2015 and spring 2016, around 800 contractors clocked in each weekday

400 portable cabins for changing rooms, break rooms and offices were installed.

Scaffolding material totaled 230,000 m³, or 230 km in 1-m³ packages, i.e. the distance between Gothenburg and Malmö, or 340 fully loaded trucks (14-metre), equal to a 5-kilometre stretch of trucks if they were lined up.

The entire project required 30,000 m³ of concrete and 3,000 tonnes of reinforcement.

Södra is investing a total of SEK 6 billion (around half a billion USD) to expand for the future. Some SEK 4 billion has been invested in the pulp mill in Värö. The expansion is now complete and will result in an increase in pulp production capacity from today’s 425,000 tonnes to 700,000 tonnes annually.
