UPM plans to invest EUR 2 billion in a new mill

URUGUAY (News release) -- UPM plans to invest EUR 2 billion in a new mill to be located near the city of Paso de los Toros in central Uruguay. The new mill would have capacity to produce about 2 million tonnes of eucalyptus pulp annually.

A year ago UPM and the government of Uruguay signed an investment agreement which outlines the local prerequisites for a potential pulp mill. The agreement details the roles, commitments and timeline for both parties as well as the relevant items to be agreed prior to the final investment decision. Currently UPM is carrying out technical studies and applying for the necessary permits.

"A pulp mill investment of this scale requires efficient logistics to enable secure wood supply and pulp deliveries from the inland mill to the port of Montevideo. This will require the construction of a modern railway to the port and a modern pulp terminal as well as development of the road network," says Petri Hakanen, Senior Vice President of the UPM Uruguay Development Project.

The new railway would provide transport opportunities not only for forestry but also for other businesses like grain and wooden products, while also increasing Uruguay's export competitiveness worldwide.

"We need to ensure that infrastructure development and the permit processes move forward as planned. These are the most significant requirements at this stage," says Hakanen.
