Fire Contained at Holmen’s Paper Mill in Norrköping
Norrköping, Sweden, 13 May 2008 -- On 11 May a fire broke out at the Holmen’s paper mill in Norrköping. One person is reported to have been slightly injured by the smoke.

The fire, which is under control, probably started in the bark and chip stacks located on the site. A number of conveyor belts for chips were damaged. Other installations that are critical for pulp and paper production, such as the TMP mill, the recovered paper mill, the steam production unit, the paper mill and its three paper machines, as well as loading and unloading at the harbor terminal, were not affected by the fire. However, production was at a standstill throughout the mill.

It is uncertain when and to what extent production in the different sections can restart until the fire has been put out and damage assessed. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire, its development and the extent of the damage.
