10. December 2015

150 million euro – order doubles production capacity at the Östrand factory

Austrian Andritz AG supplies production-technology and equipment for the expansion of the Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget (SCA) – cellulose factory Östrand in Timrå.  The contract value is estimated at about EUR 150 m. The expansion of the factory is one of the biggest investments within the Swedish industry ever.  

Thus, SCA Östrand will double its annual production capacity from 430 000 to 900 000 tons and become the largest mill in the world for softwood craft pulp. The new factory will open its gates in the second quarter of 2018. 

The scope of supply includes wood yard equipment, a pulp dryer, a major upgrade of the white liquor plant and extension of the recovery boiler, which was supplied by Andritz in 2006.
