BillerudKorsnäs experienced a major breakdown in the digester in the semi-chemical pulp production line in Gruvön. The pulp line supplies the fluting machine PM6 with pulp and consequently no fluting from PM6 can currently be produced. The breakdown of the pulp line does not have an impact on the integrated chemical pulp mill, neither does it impact the production of kraft paper, liner or liquid packaging board at the mill.
"At this point in time it is not possible to estimate the financial damage and consequences on customer deliveries, but it will have a significant impact on the current quarter financials. We will return with additional information when we know what the impact will be," says Per Lindberg, CEO of BillerudKorsnäs.
