ÅF has been contracted by Stora Enso to provide detailed engineering of a new chemical plant at Skoghall Mill in Sweden, one of the world’s largest producers of paperboard for liquid and foodstuff packaging. The contract covers about 12,000 hours.

The new chemical plant will result in major improvements to the working environment and reduce the emissions of chlorine and sulphur dioxide.

“In order to create an optimal solution for Skoghall Mill, ÅF’s local resources are collaborating with ÅF’s process specialists,” says Peter Lettenström, account manager at ÅF.

The contract covers detailed engineering of the process design, plant design, electrical and automation design. The new chemical plant is expected to be completed in autumn 2017.

ÅF has previously assisted during upgrades of the sulphate plant at Skoghall Mill.
