Pöyry awarded board-mill engineering for SAICA

By Gerald Ondrey |

Pöyry Plc. (Helsinki; www.poyry.com) has been awarded an engineering contract by SAICA Containerboard UK Ltd. for one of the world’s most advanced recycled paper mills to be built at Partington Wharfside, near Manchester, U.K. The value of Pöyry’s assignment is about €5 million, and entails complete plant and civil engineering for the paper mill and stock preparation. The new PM11 will produce 425,000 ton/yr of high-performance lightweight fluting and testliner grades to be used in the manufacture of corrugated boxes. The 100% recycled, fiber-based PM incorporates the best available boardmaking technology including low energy and fresh water consumption. The new PM is scheduled to start up at the beginning of 2012. This assignment is a continuation to previous good cooperation between SAICA and Pöyry in a number of projects in Spain and it further strengthens Pöyry’s position as the leading engineering solutions provider for the boardmaking industry.   SAICA is the largest Spanish paper-and-board manufacturer and one of the most environmentally efficient companies in Europe. It has paper machines in Zaragoza and El Burgo de Ebro in Spain and in France.
