Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill’s Arkhbum is forging ahead with the construction of a greenfield tissue plant in Vorsino, in the Kaluga region in western Russia.

The firm has completed the construction of the 14,600-m2 tissue converting building and the 13,100-m2 warehouse. The total planned size of the site is over 60,000 m2.

The 70,000-tonne/yr tissue machine, supplied by Andritz, is set to start up at the end of 2018, according to Arkhbum. The machine will be accompanied by two converting lines for production of toilet paper and kitchen towels.

The total cost of the investment is Euro 120 million ($148 million). The plant will employ 350 people. In the near- to mid-term, Arkhbum plans to raise the plant’s tissue capacity to 210,000 tonnes/yr, as well as install additional converting capacity.
