Rejlers signs agreement with Metsä Fibre on electrification and instrumentation of new bioproduct mill in Finland

Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, is currently building a new bioproduct mill in Kemi, Finland. Rejlers has signed an agreement with Metsä Fibre regarding the electrification and instrumentation engineering of the parts delivered by Metsä Fibre’s main implementation partner, Valmet, which encompasses the mill’s main processes and automation system. The new bioproduct mill is the largest investment in the history of the Finnish forest industry and will have a positive employment effect for the whole country.

The design of the new bioproduct mill is based on high efficiency in terms of the environment, energy and materials. The mill will produce renewable electricity, without any fossil fuels and with an electricity self-sufficiency rate of 250 percent. Metsä Fibre made the investment decision on the new mill in February 2020 and the construction started immediately after that.  

“Rejlers is a familiar partner to us and have convinced us of their expertise and ability to deliver such a remarkable entity. Rejlers also showed a particularly intense and motivated attitude towards the realisation of our shared goals,” says Jari-Pekka Johansson, bioproduct mill Project Director from Metsä Fibre.

“We have decades of experience in planning projects for the wood processing industry and implementing electrification, instrumentation and automation projects. Our long-term co-operation with Valmet and Metsä Fibre, as well as our skilled staff, contributed to Rejlers being commissioned. We appreciate the trust from our client and implementation partners and look forward to cooperating in the project,” says Harri Häyhä, Business Line Director at Rejlers Finland.
