15.03.2019 − 

Finnish Metsä Group is investing some €15m in modernisation and expansion of the logyard at the Joutseno pulp plant. The order for the supply of the machinery has been placed with Valmet. According to Valmet, the order includes the delivery of a log infeed conveyor with de-icing, a hydrostatically-supported debarking drum and a horizontal feed chipper. Debarking capacity, according to Metsä, will increase by approximately one third to 470m³/hour with the new machinery. The work is to commence this year and completion is scheduled for spring 2020.

The Joutseno pulp plant, which was commissioned in 2001, has an annual capacity of 330,000t BCTMP. The volume of raw timber required, according to Valmet, consists of some 690,000t industrial roundwood and sawmilling residues per annum.
