  • Four weeks planned maintenance starting end of August as part of previously announced €340 million investment upgrade to mill
  • New 300,000 tonne per annum kraft top white machine to arrive in 2020

Mondi SCP’s pulp and paper mill based in Ružomberok will start its planned annual maintenance of machinery equipment on 31 August 2019. The temporary closure will last approximately four weeks.

The annual maintenance is longer than in previous years due to a previously announced €340 million investment to the mill including preparation for a new 300,000 tonne per annum kraft top white machine which will arrive in 2020.

“As part of our €340 million investment in this mill and introduction of a new kraft top white machine in 2020, we have scheduled our annual maintenance upgrade of the mill to take place at the end of August. We anticipate this will last approximately four weeks. The health and safety of all of our employees and contractors is of paramount importance to us and we will ensure the necessary safety measures are in place during this annual maintenance upgrade,” said Bernhard Peschek, Managing Director at Mondi SCP.
