The Smurfit Kappa Nervión plant in Iurreta (Biscay/Bizkaia) aims to increase its production 10% and reach 160,000 tonnes of paper per year. The Biscayan plant, which also produces pulp and kraft paper for bags, makes 151,000 tons of paper per year and sells its production in more than 40 countries on four continents.
Smurfit Kappa Nervión has made investments for an amount in excess of 50 million euros at its Iurreta plant in recent years. Standing out among them is the installation of a new electrical generation turbine, as well as improvements in the pulp and paper production section. The latter, undertaken and implemented this very year, 2017, for an amount exceeding 15 million euros, is intended to increase the production capacity of the evaporation plant and of the black liquor recovery boiler.
