Pöyry’s Industry Business Group has been awarded services contract by Suzano Papel e Celulose for the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) services for the Balance of Plant (BOP), and the Owners’ Engineering services during the project implementation. The parties have agreed that the value of the assignment is not disclosed.
The capacity of the new state-of-the-art pulp mill is 1.5 million tonnes per annum and the start up of the mill is planned for the third quarter of 2013.
Pöyry has been involved in the project since April 2009 when Suzano awarded Pöyry a contract for conceptual and environmental studies. In March 2010 Pöyry was also awarded a pre-engineering and preparatory work for mill infrastructure.
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.
