At the end of 2013, Europe's biggest kraft paper machine went into operation in Pöls in Austria. The largest manufacturer of market pulp in Central and Eastern Europe – the Heinzel Group – invested a total of approximately 115 million euros for the machine, which is 100 m in length. The newly constructed paper mill, which is 160 m in length, provides enough space for this machine. Since the core part of the machine alone – the drying cylinder – weighs 150 tons, the floor of the production facility had to be reinforced with numerous columns.

JORDAHL H-BAU GmbH Austria supplied JORDAHL and H-BAU construction products for this project. H-BAU products used were two kinds of sheer dowel, Sound-ISOBOX, PENTAFLEX KB® 167, as well as Cretcon HD RAPIDOBAT® shuttering tubes.
