Stora Enso to double Veracel plant capacity

19 January 2007 — Sao Paolo (BRA): Stora Enso has said that its Veracel pulp venture with Aracruz is its top priority in Southern America.

Hannu Ryopponen, Enso’s CFO, said that the plant’s annual capacity is to be doubled from last year’s 975,000 tonnes.

 

Ryopponen said: "We would use the same machinery for wood deliveries and processing and the whole plant would benefit from larger volume going through."
