Anglers enjoy the Kymi River’'s clean and open waterways

Anglers enjoy the Kymi River’'s clean and open waterways

​​Preservation of waterways has been a focal point for the forest industry since the 1960's. Although timber is no longer transported by floating it down the river, a good water supply is still key to a board mill.

Anjalankoski Mill which is a mill integrate including Ingerois Mill and Anjala Mill use approximately 27,000 m3/day of water from the Kymi River. All process waters are purified at the Mills’ own biological effluent treatment plant in three steps.

The clean water of the Kymi River has also made it a hot spot for anglers and for other recreational purposes. The open waterways are 17 kilometres long and fish common to the area include pike, bream, roach and perch. Some Atlantic salmon also swim up the Kymi River during high water periods, and plans for a sal​mon gate at Korkeakoski power plant are proceeding.​

Continuous improvement and tireless work have paid off. At Ingerois Mill, work to further develop the main product of the mill, Tambrite carton board, has proven successful. According to a survey performed by Opticom International Research, Tambrite was the most acknowledged virgin fibre carton board product brand among converters in Central European markets in 2012. The Tambrite board has been upgraded, giving it increased cross-directional stiffness and a better visual appearance. As part of the process, the grammage has also been lowered.
