Work on the construction site of the Rauma sawmill project of Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, has proceeded to laying foundations and constructing frames.
You can now follow progress on the construction site in real time around the clock via web cameras.
"We want to offer people an opportunity to follow the construction of the world's most modern sawmill in real time. Earthworks and foundation work are currently in progress on the site, and the erection of buildings has also started. Daily changes related to construction and site events are clearly visible," says Project Director Harri Haapaniemi.
The value of Metsä Fibre's investment in the Rauma sawmill is around EUR 200 million, and the new unit will produce around 750,000 cubic metres of pine sawn timber annually. The new sawmill will be a worldwide forerunner in technology and efficiency. The sawmill will employ around 100 people directly in Finland and around 500 people across its direct value chain. The sawmill's employment impact during the construction phase is estimated to be roughly 1,500 person-years. The annual use of logs sourced in Finland is estimated to be around 1.5 million cubic metres. Sawn timber produced by the Rauma sawmill will be sold mainly to Europe and Asia.
