Sweco raises standard at Russian pulp and paper mill

May 8, 2008 | Press release

In northeastern Russia, the paper and board manufacturer Mondi is launching an ambitious rebuild and modernisation programme at its pulp and paper mill. Sweco has been given responsibility for architecture, structural engineering and construction management. The total contract is worth nearly EUR 5.4 million.

Sweco has been selected to provide services in connection with the modernisation and expansion of a pulp and paper mill in Syktyvkar in northeastern Russia. Sweco’s structural engineers will handle the building permit process, preparation of work documents and construction management.

“We have considerable of experience from similar projects in Sweden and abroad and often accompany our Nordic clients in their international projects. In this particular case, we are working directly for a foreign client that is investing over EUR 500 million in the project,” says Eric Bergholm, Assignment Manager, Sweco.

One important result of the modernisation is that environmentally hazardous emissions from the mill will be reduced at the same time that quality is raised and production capacity for both pulp and paper is increased. The schedule is tight, with a large share of construction planned for completion during 2008.
