Arkhangelsk, March 06. Ilim Group’s new papermaking machine at Koryazhma mill in Arkhangelsk region, built as a part of Big Koryazhma investment project, produced its first paper on March 03.

Big Koryazhma is a $270-million investment project involving construction of a new paper machine, installation of an off-machine coater, cut-size and folio sheeters, construction of precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) plant as well as implementation of some infrastructure projects. Construction of a new paper machine in Koryazhma started in summer of 2011.

In summer of 2013, the company will also start producing 70,000 tons of coated paper per year to make Ilim Group Russia’s only manufacturer of this product. The project was approved by Ilim Group’s Board of Directors on June 30, 2010. The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation has given this project a top priority status.
