Fortress Paper Ltd. has restarted operations at its Fortress Specialty Cellulose mill in Thurso, Que., after taking market downtime of 10 weeks. The FSC mill will be producing northern bleached hardwood kraft (NBHK) pulp and expects to ramp-up to normalized production in approximately 15 days. In keeping with the company's “swing mill" strategy, the FSC mill will switch production between both NBHK pulp and dissolving pulp in response to market conditions.

Yvon Pelletier, president of Fortress Specialty Cellulose Inc., commented: “I am pleased with the initiatives completed at the FSC mill during this recent downtime. As a result of these improvements, the FSC mill should operate with greater efficiency and improved reliability over the coming year."
