Finnish cleantech company Econet Group has won a substantial order for waste water treatment machinery from Russia’s largest pulp and paper company, Ilim Group.

Econet will deliver the clarifiers and sludge thickeners with sluice systems to Ilim Group’s pulp and paper plant in the Russian town of Koryazhma.

The machinery is set to be delivered in six parts during the summer months of 2019–2021. Econet will also supervise the installation of the machinery, specially designed for the demanding arctic conditions.

“We have delivered wastewater treatment machinery for Ilim Group for a long period of time, and this order is one of the largest so far,” said Matti Leppäniemi, Econet’s chairperson of the board. “The deal tells about Econet’s position as a wastewater treatment plant technology expert, and it is significant to our factory Slamex in Lahti.”

Ilim Group has announced a multi-billion-euro investment programme to modernise its production and launch new capacities in order to retain its leadership position in the Russian pulp and paper market.
