Metsä Tissue is investing in world-leading environmental and operational performance in tissue paper production by modernizing and expanding its paper mill in Mariestad, Sweden. AFRY has been involved in the pre-project and is now a selected partner to deliver several services in the construction phase.
AFRY’s assignment covers both expansion and adaptation of existing mills, which includes participation in Metsä Tissue’s project organisation, including construction management, scheduling and coordination of engineering activities.
AFRY will also provide engineering services within construction and architecture, land and environment, process and piping, and as well as being responsible for local engineering support for foreign suppliers. The latter includes, for example, guidelines and training in local regulations.
Construction work started in spring 2023 and the new modernised mill is planned to be operational by the end of 2025.
Metsä Tissue is one of the leading tissue paper suppliers in Europe to households and professionals and one of the leading greaseproof paper suppliers globally. Metsä Tissue is part of Metsä Group.
