August 23, 2017 - Fibria’s new pulp mill in Três Lagoas (Brazil) starts operations ahead of schedule

Company advances delivery of second production line by three weeks and consolidates its global leadership in the sector

Três Lagoas (State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil) – Fibria, a Brazilian company that is the world’s leading producer of eucalyptus pulp from planted forests, has advanced the operational startup of its new mill at Três Lagoas in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul. The company’s second pulp production line goes operational three weeks ahead of schedule, while originally slated for the first half of September.

The result of investments totaling R$7.5 billion, Fibria’s second mill in Três Lagoas will have production capacity of 1.95 million tons of eucalyptus pulp per year. Combined with the first unit, already operational in the city, the company will have a production capacity of 3.25 million tons of pulp/year, which makes Fibria’s operation in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul one of the largest pulp mills in the world. Including all other units of the company – Aracruz in Espírito Santo state, Jacareí in São Paulo state, and Eunápolis in Bahia state, where it operates Veracel – Fibria has total production capacity of 7.25 million tons of pulp/year, which consolidates its global leadership in the sector.

Fibria announced the expansion of its Três Lagoas unit in May 2015 and works started soon after. For the past 27 months, the project has created approximately 40,000 jobs – considering Fibria´s employees and the entire supplier chain and project developers.

“In this period spanning slightly over two years, we finished the world´s largest single line pulp mill ahead of schedule and bellow budget, which proves the commitment demonstrated by the entire team to increasing productivity, reducing costs and always delivering the best, with safety and respect to people and the environment. The startup of our second plant at Três Lagoas represents the start of a new phase for the company, consolidating our global leadership in the industry,” said Marcelo Castelli, CEO of Fibria.

Fibria’s new unit at Três Lagoas features a series of innovations in construction, operations, as well as industrial and forestry processes. One of the highlights is the automated nursery for eucalyptus seedlings – the greatest technological innovation the field of forestry in recent years. To meet the demand for 43 million seedlings a year, specialists from the company traveled to the Netherlands to learn about the technology used in flower production. Based on the lessons learned, they devised a strategy to create not only the world’s largest but also the first fully automated eucalyptus seedling nursery.

Fibria’s automated nursery is equipped with technologies, such as automated irrigation, which enables detailed control of plant handling and nutrition, and a private weather station that automatically opens and closes retractable roofs depending on the climate, providing added protection to seedlings in the most sensitive phase. The station also measures the intensity of solar energy in the nursery, enabling the best control over the quantity of water necessary for the plants.
“These and other innovations we implemented are the result of extensive research, planning, joint team efforts and the audacity to look at the process always from new points of view. This is how Fibria incorporates in practice the sustainability and operating excellence into its day-to-day operations,” said Júlio Cunha, chief engineering and projects officer at Fibria.

Fibria’s income at R$215 million in 2Q11O
São Paulo – In 2Q11, Fibria’s net income reached R$215 million, 66% up the same period in 2010.

The decreased revenue was offset by the Company’s improved financial results, which rose from a R$310 million loss in 2010, when the dollar appreciated 1% to R$277 million gains at the end of 2Q11, due to the 4% dollar depreciation in the period.
