– Dellon France, a subsidiary of Springwater Capital LLC, has acquired the tangible assets of the former Vertaris SAS paper and deinked pulp (DIP) mill in Voreppe, France, and plans to restart it as a premium DIP mill in October, selling dried pulp to the market, Euwid reported on March 11.
The capacity at the start would be 140,000 tonnes/year. Plans are to increase the capacity by 2016 to 200,000 tonnes/year, said Springwater Capital spokesperson Michael Kihlgren.
The initial investment is reportedly €15 million-€20 million (US$20.9 million-US$27.8 million), with the additional capacity expected to amount to another €5 million.
Dellon France would also produce cellulose-based insulation material, using fiber of lesser purity, with an output of 20,000 tonnes/year, Kihlgren said.
Private investment firm Springwater Capital has administrative centers in Geneva and Luxembourg, according to the company website.
