IRKUTSK, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — The production of bleached pulp at the Baikal pulp and paper mill will reach 80 percent of estimated capacity in March 2012, an company administration official told Itar-Tass.
After production stopped in November 2008, the BTsBK resumed operation in March 2010, but the output has not exceeded 60 percent of rated capacity since.
"In March 2012, the first stage of repairs was completed of the timber shop of the BTsBK and the Timber Exchange which is an integral part of production," the official said.
In February, the company launched the third technological processing line for conversion into industrial chips. The BTsBK administration said the paper mill has fully resolved the problem of shortage of timber, by ensuring a stable non-decreasing reserve for one-month production cycle.
Three technological liens of the paper mill process more than 50,000 cubic meters of raw materials supplied from the Irkutsk region, the Krasnoyarsk and Baikal Territories and Buryatia.
The BTsBK was commissioned in 1966. Rosimpushchestvo owns 49 percent in the company /a federal stake/ and the remaining 51 percent are in the hands of Continental Invest. External management was introduced at the company from December 2010 through June 22, 2012. By March 2012, the Ministry of Economic Development, jointly with the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and regional authorities should prepare proposals on modernization and retooling of the BTsBK.
