Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/19/2015, Location: Europe

Kotkamills has awarded Poyry with the assignment for engineering consultancy, laser scanning, 3D modelling, detail engineering and site services for the folding boxboard machine project at their Kotka Mill in Finland. The assignment is a continuation of the pre-feasibility services performed by Poyry and it covers the majority of the required engineering services related to the implementation of the project.

With a focus on environmental sustainability, this project responds to growing customer demand by introducing high-quality recyclable barrier board to the market. Unlike other generally used plastic-coated boards, the barrier board of Kotkamills can be recycled without any special measures. By converting the paper machine product to packaging boards, Kotkamills will secure its position as a globally significant manufacturer of forest industry products. Following the conversion into a board machine, Kotka Mill's capacity will be about 400,000 tonnes per year of folding boxboard.

The conversion work is planned to take place during the second quarter of 2016. The board machine is scheduled to start up by the end of June 2016.

"We are very pleased to be able to continue our productive co-operation with Poyry , one of the few engineering companies who knows paper industry throughout and can fulfil the whole expertise portfolio needed in this kind of wide project with various innovative process parts", says Markku Hamalainen, CEO of Kotkamills Oy.

"This project is a continuation of the co-operation between Kotkamills and Poyry . Developing long term partnerships is a benefit for both; client and Poyry . We are proud to be a part of this innovative project that emphasises balanced sustainability, which is at the heart of our business. This project further strengthens Poyry 's position as the world's leading pulp and paper engineering consultancy", says Nicholas Oksanen, President, Industry Business Group.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order will be recognized within the Industry Business Group order stock in Q2/2015.
