VARO, Sweden , October 25, 2005 (press release) – Around 500 contractors over and above mill employees are currently working flat out to go through the Södra Cell pulp mill in Värö in the first major maintenance shutdown for 18 months.

Pulp production is at a standstill as of Monday, and in total the shutdown will last approx. two weeks, with expected start up on 23 April.

A thorough examination and overhaul of the recovery boiler is one of the most important tasks after such a long operating period. Examples of other work being carried out:

- surfacing of six digesters

- exchange of middle section and renovation of lime kiln cooler

- installation of blow chute in the PO-stage

”Last but not least, hundreds of large and small maintenance jobs are being done in all departments,” explains Egon Börjesson, technical service manager.

Investments in conjunction with the shutdown are estimated at a value of approx. SEK 25 M.
