Mönsterås: Maintenance in a pandemic
Our Mönsterås mill will close during weeks 17-19 for essential maintenance. Tobias Runesson, Maintenance Manager, explains that the shutdown can no longer be postponed, as some of the work has already been delayed from last year, due to Covid-19.
“Ensuring a safe stop during the pandemic has added several days to the shutdown. As well as essential maintenance that cannot wait any longer, we are also rebuilding the recovery boiler’s air system to ensure that it can perform consistently at higher loads. In addition, a new screening plant before one of the dryers will ensure lower dirt levels and mean that we can produce more of the EX Extra Clean pulp grades which many customers value.”
Runesson and his team have a busy few weeks ahead: “We are expecting around 1,200 extra people from 8-10 countries on site. We had a practice run for this during the smaller stop last year which involved around 400 suppliers on site and we have been preparing for some time now.”
