Klabin will conduct the annual maintenance shutdown of the Correia Pinto Unit, in Santa Catarina, Brazil, from August 1 to 26. The shutdown involves interrupting paper production to perform the maintenance required to ensure that all equipment continues to operate properly, the safety of the facility and the quality of the production process, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
During the period, 60 outsourced companies and some 1,400 outsourced workers will be involved in the activities. Some of the main activities include inspections of boilers, digesters, power generation and distribution systems and production process control systems.
The number of temporary workers requires additional logistics and infrastructure, such as transportation, accommodation, meals and other items that help boost demand and the local economy of Correia Pinto and the surrounding region. Other benefits generated by the shutdown include the generation of taxes for the city and increased traffic at hotels, bars, restaurants and stores, as well as support services for accommodating workers in the city.
Klabin is Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter and the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging, industrial bags and timber in logs.
