SWECO: Sweco commissioned for sustainable packaging solutions initiative

Sweco has been commissioned by BillerudKorsnäs for construction
management of a new board manufacturing machine at the Gruvön
production plant and structural design for reconstruction of the
existing pulp mill.

The project is being carried out in view of the increased global
demand for sustainable food and beverage packaging solutions. The end
result will be a packaging facility that contributes to reducing
fossil dependency, climate impact and littering while improving food
security.

"The ability to package products in a way that minimises climate
impact is a key issue for the future. Together with our customer, we
are creating a sustainable, cutting-edge production facility," says
Åsa Bergman, President of Sweco Sweden.

Sweco's project involves construction management of the entire
investment - the new board machine as well as reconstruction of the
existing pulp mill. Sweco is also responsible for structural design
of the reconstruction.

"Sweco has extensive experience in complex industrial projects
throughout Europe, and we have a strong local presence in the area.
In this project, we will help our customer utilise a valuable, local
raw material: the renewable Nordic forest," says Åsa Bergman.

The new cardboard machine will have an annual production capacity of
550,000 tonnes, making it one of the largest of its kind in the
world. According to BillerudKorsnäs, the entire investment totals SEK
5.7 billion.

Sweco's work on the project will start immediately. The new plant is
scheduled to begin operations in 2019.
