UPM has selected technology group ANDRITZ to supply energy-efficient and environmentally leading equipment and processes for all main process islands in fiber production and chemical recovery for the new pulp mill to be constructed near Paso de los Toros in central Uruguay. The world-class eucalyptus pulp mill will have an annual production capacity of 2.1 million tonnes and is scheduled to start up in the second half of 2022.

The core equipment supplied by ANDRITZ will originate largely from Finland and thus will have a significant positive employment impact on ANDRITZ’s staff there as well as on the ANDRITZ workshops where a large part of the core equipment for this contract will be manufactured.
