Investment at Roermond

Smurfit Kappa has awarded Pöyry with the detail engineering services assignment for the modification of PM1 at Roermond, Netherlands. The assignment includes process engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical, automation and instrumentation engineering. In Roermond, Smurfit Kappa produces around 600,000 tonnes of paper per year on three paper machines. PM1 has been in operation for 40 years. Since the last modification, it produces Testliner and Fluting at up to 1,000 metres per minute.

The target of the rebuilding of the approach flow system and the wire section is to increase the operating speed as well as the production quality. “Thanks to the revamp of PM1, we will be able to produce more efficiently and reach the highest possible standards in quality. This investment enables us to continue to be ahead of the market and satisfy our customers’ needs,” says Sjon Vrieze, Project Manager at Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier.
