Metsä Board Corporation will sell the entire share capital of its fully owned subsidiary Oy Hangö Stevedoring Ab to Euroports Finland Oy. The transaction is expected to be completed in the 1Q 2022.

Valmet will supply a long-term performance agreement and a board machine rebuild to Metsä Board Husum in Sweden. The start-up of the rebuilt BM 1 is scheduled to take place in the fall of 2023. The total value of an order of this type and delivery scope is typically around Euro 70–80 million.

The Hämeenkyrön Voima power plant, from which Metsä Board's Kyro mill buys energy, has replaced the peat it burns with renewable energy. In the future, the power plant aims to use wood-based fuels from Metsä Group's production and wood procurement by-products.
