Output in Joutseno was 64,000 tonnes higher than in the preceding year, setting a new record of 657,906 tonnes. This was more than 52,000 tonnes higher than the previous record set in 2012. This record performance is primarily due to the pro-active attitude of all mill staff in work to improve availability.
A similar record was set in Kemi where the total output of 585,402 tonnes clearly exceeded the previous record of 564,454 tonnes achieved in 2013. This again reflected a proactive approach in work to enhance availability, together with advances in drying-line performance achieved under a programme of continual improvement.
