The factory will be located at the site of a former paper mill and will have a production capacity of 30,000 metric tons of Infinna annually, which is equivalent to the fibre required to make around 100 million T-shirts, Infinited Fiber company said in a press release.
Infinited Fiber Company has announced the signing of a letter of award with Rejlers Finland for the provision of engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for the construction of its circular Infinna fibre factory in Kemi, Finland. The factory will have a production capacity of 30,000 metric tons of Infinna annually.
The future factory’s customer-base includes several of the world’s leading apparel companies, with most of the future production capacity already sold out for several years.
“Since the February update, our work to build the first commercial-scale Infinna textile fibre factory has continued to progress by leaps and bounds. Signing the letter of award with Rejlers for the provision of EPCM services is yet another important milestone for the project,” the release added.
“Selecting Rejlers as the EMPC partner for our €400 million flagship factory project was a result of thorough consideration. Their leading expertise in delivering complex EPCM projects make them an ideal partner to help us build the world’s first Infinna fibre factory, which is a key steppingstone to scaling up our production capacity,” said Petri Alava, CEO of Infinited Fiber Company.
“We very much look forward to this cooperation. This extensive project represents circularity, modern technology and new venture and encompasses EPCM delivery—all of these aspects are attractive for us and in line with our strategy. Rejlers’ EPC and EPCM portfolio has increased substantially over the last years,” said Mikko Vaahersalo, CEO of Rejlers Finland.
