Pöyry awarded EUR 7.5 million pulp mill engineering contract in Brazil
PÖYRY PLC Company Announcement 31 March 2010 at 3.45 p.m.
Eldorado Celulose e Papel Ltda, Brazil, has awarded Pöyry a contract for pre-engineering and preparatory work for mill infrastructure for a 1.5 million t/a bleached eucalyptus market pulp mill to be built in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The value of Pöyry's assignment is about EUR 7.5 million. The final investment decision is expected later this year.
The concept of the mill is based on the use of the best available technologies and the best environmental practices, which constitute a state-of-the-art level pulp mill. Using existing eucalyptus plantations as raw material, the mill is to produce more with less use of natural resources, at low production costs, progressive environmental impact reduction and minimum risk of accidents at work.
The assignment now received strengthens Pöyry's position as the leading engineering solutions provider for the pulp and paper sector in the world.
