Södra to invest in green electricity generation at its Mörrum pulp mill in Sweden

SWEDEN (News release) -- Södra has decided to invest in a new condensing turbine in the pulp mill at Mörrum, which will increase the county of Blekinge's electricity generation by 20%. The investment, amounting to several hundreds of millions of Swedish kronor, is a major and important step for Södra in strengthening competitiveness by utilising more of the wood raw material from family forestry and thereby increasing the profitability of forest estates.

The condensing turbine will optimise the energy yield from the process by generating more electricity from the same amount of raw material. The amount of electricity supplied by Södra Cell Mörrum will reduce the need to import electricity from fossil fuel power plants for Blekinge's grid. It will also deliver continuous and weather-independent electricity to the grid, which will improve stability.

The new turbine will be placed in a new turbine hall on Södra's industrial site and is scheduled for operation by mid-2026.

Södra is the largest forest-owner association in Sweden, with more than 50,000 family forest owners as members.
