Blue Paper has restarted its production on schedule after modernization of the dryer section

After a technical shutdown of 6 weeks for the modernization of the drying section of its paper machine, Blue Paper resumed production on Tuesday November 24 in accordance with the project schedule. The local teams are now focusing on ramping up equipment in order to achieve nominal production volumes as quickly as possible. After this reconstruction, Blue Paper’s capacity will be extended to 440,000 tonnes of corrugated paper made from recycled fiber (+ 13 %).This investment amounted to € 15 million overall: € 11 million for investment and € 4 million for maintenance. Andritz and Valmet are among the main players in this project.

Based in Strasbourg (France), Blue Paper is a subsidiary of VPK and Klingele.
