Fineweld to deliver pipe bridges to the Kemi bioproduct Mill

The modular pipe bridge concept designed and developed by Fineweld has awaken great interest in particular with major forestry sector companies for their billion-euro level investment projects. Entrepreneur and founder of Fineweld, Matti Laitinen, comments the procurement as follows:

“This is already the third large pipe bridge project in the past five years where we have been selected as supplier. It feels great that after two of Sweden’s largest forestry industry projects, we also won this contract for Metsä Fibre/Group’s Kemi bioproduct mill that is by far the largest and most interesting project in Finland for the moment. This proves that when you have guts to do things in a slightly different way from your competitors and concentrate on demanding project deliveries, Finnish companies will continue to have the opportunity to participate in such mega-level projects”.

The project will start immediately, installations on site will commence at the beginning of next year, and the entire project shall be completed by mid-2023.
