Thailand’s largest integrated paper producer, Siam Pulp and Paper (SPP), is planning to build a 200,000 t/yr paper mill in Amphur Nampong in Khon Kaen province, north east Thailand. Pulp for the mill will come from Phoenix Pulp and Paper’s mill also in Amphur Nampong. Phoenix is a subsidiary of SPP.
Construction of the US$194 million mill is planned to start in July 2007, with startup at the end of 2008.
RISI reports that SPP has signed a contract with Voith Paper to provide the paper machine for the mill.
