Clearing up at Laakirchen Oapier AG following the fire at pm 10 ongoing; repairs started immediately

Laakirchen. The extent of the damage caused on PM10 by the fire on 24th September is not yet exactly defined. After first assessments the damage will be in the range of a few million Euro. A technical fault has been determined as the reason for the fire and detailed investigations have revealed a broken power train demolishing hydraulic tubes as the cause. Consequently the hydraulic oil leakage caught fire. The cause for the breakage of the power train is under investigation.
The extent of the damage of some of the machine components and the period of supply is not yet known, therefore an assertive statement about the down times scale is not yet possible.
However according to current state of knowledge Laakirchen targets to restart PM10 by end of the year 2015.
The second paper machine PM11 is not affected by the fire and continues production.
