Metsä Fibre, a part of Metsä Group, is reporting that the foundation stone has been laid and work continues at the site of their new sawmill in Rauma, Finland. Due to the coronavirus all of the stonework was done without any external participants. In a statement, Harri Haapaniemi, Project Director of the Rauma sawmill project said, “The sawmill’s foundation stone has been laid, and both the engineering and construction have progressed according to plan. The roof and external walls of the sorting line are complete. Piping and plumbing work is underway as we speak, as are the floors. The installation of the wall elements and the construction of the roof at the sawline have also begun. At the debarking department, they’re working on the foundations and the first drying plant structures are up. The construction work will be completed at the end of September, and most equipment and machinery installations will get underway in late summer. The sawmill’s production will begin in the 3Q 2022.”
