With services from Pöyry beginning at a very early stage, Holmen Paper's new mill in Madrid started up successfully. The mill produces standard newsprint, along with MF Magazine and lightly coated paper. The primary market region for the mill's products is southern Europe.

Holmen Paper has been involved with Pöyry in several joint projects for more than 30 years. Pöyry provided pre-feasibility and feasibility studies as well as process, mechanical, piping, HVAC and process control engineering for the new mill in Madrid. Assistance in erection supervision, commissioning and start-up was also provided.

Good teamwork between Holmen Paper and Pöyry along with modern engineering tools contributed to the success of the project. With the Local Service contract, Pöyry will make sure that the comprehensive design document prepared during the project is kept up to date and that services will be promptly available for minor improvements and rebuilds.
