Production to gradually resume today at the Bruck paper mill
Reference is made to the press release dated 9 March 2022, relating to temporary downtime at the Bruck paper mill due to unaffordability of production caused by unprecedented energy prices.
Today, the Bruck paper mill will gradually resume production as energy markets have stabilised to some extent and commercial terms reflecting the current energy situation have been entered into with customers. The new energy boiler is progressing well with its commissioning phase. The boiler is scheduled for takeover in April and will reduce the mill’s gas consumption and improve its energy supply.
- With somewhat calmer energy markets and required commercial terms, we are pleased that the Bruck paper mill is able to gradually resume production. The new energy boiler, in combination with the existing gas turbine, will give Bruck improved energy flexibility in increasingly uncertain energy markets, says Sven Ombudstvedt, President and CEO of Norske Skog.
