STRASBOURG, France, June 9, 2021 (Press Release) -In November 2020, Blue Paper Strasbourg (France) successfully completed a drying section rebuild of its containerboard machine. As a result, PM1 has reached several new production records since January 2021, even reaching a day production record of over 1.500 tons on 14th of March.
Despite the good start and results, Blue Paper experienced an unexpected issue in the press section area of PM1. The repair works to be carried out will result in 6 days of unplanned production downtime beginning of June.
To minimize overall downtime, next week’s planned downtime will be cancelled. Those repair works will be combined with the current unplanned downtime so that production can resume as soon as possible and Blue paper can continue to focus on improving productivity and delivering great results.
