Bracell has awarded Pöyry with an EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Management) assignment to develop the BoP (Balance of Plant) of the Star Project.

The new mill located in Lençóis Paulista, state of São Paulo, will increase its current production capacity of 250,000 tons to 1.5 million tons per year. The new mill will be a flexible line, designed primarily to produce dissolving pulp to supply internal integrated demand.

Pöyry has been involved with the Star Project since the beginning and was responsible for conceptual study, environmental licensing support, basic engineering, and detail engineering for the site infrastructure and access road duplication. The completion of the Star Project is scheduled for 2021.
