ÅF Group secures major order from Holmen Paper
The ÅF Group has been awarded a major contract by Holmen Paper in conjunction with the decision to invest in a new paper line at the Fuenlabrada newsprint mill in Madrid, Spain.
The order is a relatively large one for the ÅF Group.
The project will be headed by the ÅF Group's Pulp & Paper Division via its subsidiary, Incepal S.A, which is based in San Sebastian, Spain. The order is the result of close cooperation between Pulp & Paper's offices and expertise in Spain, France and Sweden.
For Sweden's part the project will have the greatest impact on the offices in Norrköping, Stockholm and Sundsvall.
The contract comprises project organisation resources from the ÅF Group to deal with project planning, process planning and the operational planning of pulp production, external purification facilities, infrastructure and all construction planning for the new production line.
It is planned that the new paper line, due to be commissioned early in 2006, will produce approximately 300,000 tonnes of newsprint per year. For the ÅF Group's part, work will commence immediately and continue for the next two years.
