Roto-cart, Norske Skog end joint tissue project

Norske Skog’s tissue project, a conversion of the newsprint site in Bruck, Austria, has progressed well with all permits in place and ground work completed. The partnership with Italian tissue paper and products manufacturer Roto-cart has however not developed as intended and has been terminated. Norske Skog is currently in discussions with alternative partners.

The Bruck mill is ideally located close to key markets and has synergies with large-scale paper production. The timeline is extended from spring 2017 to year-end 2017.

Upon completion, the 125,000 tonnes newsprint machine will be closed, while the 265,000 tonnes LWC machine will continue production.
