MÖRRUM – A SPECIALTY MILL
Södra Cell’s Mörrum can be considered a specialty mill in the world of pulp – in addition to producing some 300,000 tonnes per year of high-quality softwood market pulp, it also produces 170,000 tonnes per year of dissolving pulp for the production of textiles. It has two separate lines at the mill.
Among the latest investments at the mill was the installation of a new evaporation plant from ANDRITZ, which is part of the mill’s long-term goal to increase pulp production capacity at the site to 500,000 tonnes annually.
“We chose ANDRITZ to supply the evaporation plant at Mörrum for a variety of reasons,” says Karlsson. “We looked into all areas with all suppliers, technically, financially, of course, but also organizationally. It was really important to us how a supplier would run the project from their side.
“It was clear quite early that there was big support from ANDRITZ as a company for taking on this project, and it seems they really wanted to work with us. It even seemed that there was an element of prestige in working with Södra Cell Mörrum. We liked that approach.”
