Värö’s expansion could happen sooner than planned
Phase one of the project to increase Värö’s capacity from just over 700,000 to 780,000 tpy was originally planned for the end of 2022 but it now looks likely that the target could be achieved by Q4 of that year, a few months early.
Project Manager Viktor Jägerström says that no additional downtime will be taken to implement the series of incremental improvements which will lead to the higher capacity: “The project involves six different sub-projects,” he explains, “from ventilation and hydraulics on the drying machine to additional screens and wash press in the fibre line. We can complete many of the jobs during normal operation and the bigger elements that do require shutdown will take place during the rescheduled maintenance break.
