Bulgaria wins foreign funds

Pirinhart is splashing out on a modernization project at its mill in Razlog, Bulgaria. The company is to carry out various upgrades as part of a $7 million investment project.

Paper capacity is set to rise by 20,000 tons/yr following a PM rebuild. The project involves a new winder and modifications to the wire and drying sections. The rebuild will boost the existing capacity of kraftliner and testliner to 120,000 tons/yr.

The mill is also upgrading its recovery boiler to increase unbleached kraft pulp capacity from 70,000 tons/yr to 100,000 tons/yr.

Zveta of Switzerland and Valfin of Italy bought 51.8% of the company’s shares under a privatization program carried out in June 1997. The two foreign investors hope to increase this stake shortly.

Lesilhart looks ahead: Zveta and Valfin’s interest in Bulgaria does not stop at the Pirinhart mill. The two parties also control 71% of the Lesilhart pulp and paper mill in Silistra. Lesilhart has a capacity of 40,000 tons/yr of mechanical pulp and 30,000 tons/yr of woodfree and woodcontaining papers.

Lesilhart will also benefit from a $4-5 million overhaul. There are plans to add an extra 10,000-15,000 tons/yr of paper capacity.

A decision on this project is expected this month. If the plans go ahead, the new equipment would come on stream in 1999.
