The Finnish Metsä Group has selected SKF as supplier of lubrication systems for a groundbreaking bioproduct mill that is being built by Metsä Fibre in the Finnish town of Äänekoski.

The new mill will produce high-quality pulp, and in addition a broad range of bio products, and it will run solely on renewable energy. At approximately $1.3 billion, it is the largest-ever single investment in Finland’s forestry industry, and it is a major step forward in the development of sustainable production processes, as it will produce significantly more electricity than it will need.

SKF will supply mainly dual-line grease lubrication devices for about 3,000 lubrication points in the mill, as well as specially developed, new-generation lubrication control centers with mobile access. The mill will go into operation in the third quarter of 2017.
