UPM has made an investment decision to construct a 2,1 million tonne greenfield eucalyptus pulp mill near Paso de los Toros. The total investment of the project exceeds USD 3 billion. The operation of the new pulp mill generates 10,000 permanent jobs and involves in the production chain more than 600 small and medium size local companies. More information on the investment can be found via UPM Paso De Los Toros website.
UPM uses the Material Tracking System (MHS) to track equipment in the project. UPM’s target for using the Material Tracking System was to introduce material and technology delivery suppliers directly to the contractors through a common system and database where the deliveries and their contents could be easily traced.
More information on the project can also be found on UPM’s YouTube channel.
