Stora Enso invests about 100 million euros in the expansion of production

Stora Enso is investing 97 million euros to expand the production of cardboard at the Skoghall plant in Sweden.

The project, which is expected to be completed in the second half of 2023, will contribute to further profitable growth in attractive end-use segments - cardboard for packaging liquid products and coated kraft cardboard. Subject to obtaining environmental permits, the volume of cardboard production at the Skoghall plant will grow by 100 thousand tons per year. The expansion of production will be implemented by eliminating bottlenecks on one of the existing lines and carried out in two stages using scheduled stops for maintenance.

In addition, Stora Enso decided to conduct a preliminary feasibility study to convert an idle paper machine at a factory in Finnish Oulu into a packaging cardboard production line. The results of the feasibility study will be published in early 2022.
