Full steam ahead at Mörrum

Our pulp mill in Mörrum will soon be home to a new condensing turbine which will increase the county of Blekinge’s electricity generation by 20 percent. We are investing several hundred million Swedish kronor in the project. This is a major and important step to strengthen our competitiveness since it will mean that we can use more of the wood raw material from our members’ forests and thereby increase the profitability of their forest estates. Ensuring their viability helps us guarantee our future supply of sustainably-managed wood for our pulp and timber mills, so it’s a virtuous circle.

Demand for green electricity is growing as society’s green transition intensifies. But as we consume more electricity, we are also increasingly aware of the importance of energy and resource efficiency in everything we do, which is why we are actively working to strengthen our industrial competitiveness, offer products with a low carbon footprint, maintain a positive energy balance and to continue supplying surplus green electricity to our local communities. The new condensing turbine is part of this process.

“Our mission is to generate maximum value from every wood fibre that family forestry delivers to our mills. This investment will achieve that in both the long and short term. In the short term, it will increase our energy efficiency and in the long term, it will give us the right conditions to continue developing our mills,” said Stefan Sandberg, Mill Manager, Södra Cell at Mörrum.

The condensing turbine will optimise the energy yield from the process by generating more electricity from the same amount of raw material. The electricity supplied by Mörrum will reduce Blekinge’s need to import electricity from fossil-fuel power plants. It will also deliver continuous and weather-independent electricity to the grid, which will improve stability.

The 79 GWh the new turbine will produce is on a par with Blekinge’s total hydro power production, half of its wind power, and more than three times its solar power. The turbine’s capacity will be enough to power 35,000 electric cars per year (which is equivalent to just under a third of all newly registered electric cars in Sweden in 2023) or electricity for almost 14,000 households (there are a total of just over 76,000 households in Blekinge).
