When delivering a new mill, the PM11 in Partington, United Kingdom, SAICA wanted to avoid unnecessary risks whilst ensuring that it made the most of the latest technology and delivered the highest performance possible.  Building on a long-term relationship, Pöyry used the knowledge and trust between the two organisations to provide scheduling, engineering and supervisory services for the erection, commissioning and start-up of the new PM11 containerboard paper machine.

We wanted to bring some new ideas to the project, and we believed Pöyry would be the right partner to support us to develop and implement them. We can now see that these innovations have helped to us build a more competitive and sustainable mill - Mr Francisco Carilla, Industrial Projects Director of SAICA.

As a result, SAICA´s PM11 started up a few days ahead of the tight schedule.  The new PM11 is one of the most advanced mills of its type in the world, incorporating the best available board manufacturing technology.
