Finnpulp has been planning a bioproduct mill in Kuopio in Eastern Finland but has now given the project up. At the same time the company also gave away the site agreement with the City of Kuopio for the planned Sorsasalo mill area.
Finnpulp has also had preliminary agreements with the owners of the neighboring properties of the planned mill area. Similarly, these agreements will be abandoned.
After this the company does not have any other agreements or plans pending in Kuopio. “At this point the company does not have anything else to comment”, says CEO Martti Fredrikson.
