Setback at Norske Skog
Fire at the Norske Skog Saugbrugs mill in Norway caused long term stop in paper production. On February 02, fire caused damage to part of the thermo-mechanical pulp plant which supplies the paper machines with fibre. All production facilities at the mill were stopped due to this. Normal production has subsequently been started at one paper machine (PM4), which produces about 10 000 tonnes per month. Norsk Skog Saugbrugs will have a loss in production of about 30-35 000 tonnes per month (PM5 and PM6).
