Supported by FEDER funds, Munksjö improves one of its paper machines in its Tolosa plant, Spain

FEBRUARY 15, 2023
With the support of €203,600 from FEDER funds,
Munksjö is pleased to announce that have
successfully completed the rebuild of the vacuum
system at one of its paper machines at
the Tolosa plant in Spain. This project’s basis has
been replacing 10 Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps with a
cutting-edge, market-leading Turbo Blower, which
offers much more energy efficiency with savings of
over 30%.
The initiative is in line with Munksjö’s commitment to
continuously improve our operations to offer quality
solutions in an increasingly sustainable way. The aid
obtained from FEDER funds is an incentive and an
important driver of the activity, as it reduces the
company’s costs in the project and the payback time.
“The support obtained under the Support Program for
Energy Efficiency Actions in SMEs and Large Companies in the Industrial Sector for the years 2019 and
2020, with the financial support of the European Union, meant for Munksjö a substantial support of the total
amount invested in the project, and an important acceleration in the pace of project implementation”,
comments Iñaki Munduate, Tolosa’ s plant manager.
