The capacity of the new state-of-the-art pulp mill is 1.3 million tonnes per year and the startup of the mill is planned for the first quarter of 2015. The bleached eucalyptus pulp production line is the largest investment in the CMPC history.
Pöyry has been involved in the project since October, 2010 when CMPC awarded Pöyry an assignment for feasibility studies and basic engineering. The company was also awarded a preparatory work for the mill infrastructure. Now Pöyry will be responsible for overseeing that the different parts of the plant will be efficiently developed and connected together. CMPC selected Pöyry for the company's exceptional track record and thought leadership in similar projects. The concept of the mill is based on the use of the best available technologies and the best environmental practices.
The contract further strengthens Pöyry's position as the world's leading engineering solutions provider for the pulp and paper sector.
