In connection with the start-up last week of containerboard production at Norske Skog Bruck, we invite press, investors and other interested parties to the official opening ceremony of our new containerboard machine at the Bruck industrial site on 22 June.
Norske Skog Bruck started its containerboard production last week, introducing 210 000 tonnes of competitive testliner and fluting capacity to meet the growing demand for renewable packaging. The production is based 100% on recycled fibre and will use steam from the new waste-to-energy plant, which opened in April 2022.
Norske Skog Bruck will start to deliver containerboard to customers in the second quarter. Full production utilisation of 95% is expected in the second half of 2025.
“We are excited to enter a new market. This represents a new era for Norske Skog and is a major step to become a leading independent European producer of high-quality, renewable, and environmentally produced containerboard. The new products illustrate the inherent potential of our industrial sites and will strengthen Norske Skog’s asset base and cash flow generation for decades ahead,” says Norske Skog’s CEO Sven Ombudstvedt.
