Ensure continuity of production and optimise the resources of the SMURFIT KAPPA paper mill
Ensure sustainable management of raw materials and waste flows, maintain production machines
The availability of its production machines alongside the sustainable management of its raw materials and waste are essential to the uninterrupted and secure production of paper at its plants.
The current delegated management contract was signed in 2015 for a 3-year term, enabling SUEZ to support SMURFIT KAPPA in its continuous production of paper at Biganos-Facture.
Secure the supply of production materials, perform maintenance on machines and manage site waste
Our role had three components:
- Manage the supply of raw materials
- Regular full cleaning of machines
- Manage solid and liquid waste generated by the site
Manage the supply of raw materials
SMURFIT KAPPA uses recycled paper in the production of its packaging products. As its supplier, SUEZ delivers recycled paper from its sorting centres to paper production plants.
SMURFIT KAPPA production machines are only shut down for brief periods, during which they must receive full maintenance. The dedicated team of 10 technicians with all the skills, accreditations and equipment required to deliver this servicing, is supervised by a maintenance manager.
The team carries out full servicing on production machines:
Full waste management
The production machine maintenance team also manages solid and liquid waste produced by the site:
- management and recovery.
Daily support for continuous production activities at the Biganos-Facture plant
The outset of the contract was very satisfactory as we were able assemble the team and the equipment in a record time, which prevented the site from incurring a slowdown.The team's expertise in this sector, these activities, and their responsiveness in the maintenance and servicing of paper production machines is a genuinely distinctive value for SMURFIT KAPPA as it demonstrates our ability to meet all situations, thereby securing the continuity of their production.
