Assessing earthquake risk: Kinleith Pulp & Paper

Located in Tokoroa, New Zealand, is the large Kinleith Pulp & Paper Industrial Complex. In order to assess the risk of damage posed to the complex by future earthquakes, BCHF completed a number of studies. The studies included the analysis of historical and potential future earthquakes, studying the local geology to assess the risks, surveying the earthquake resistance of the major structures at each site, and relating the risk of earthquake occurrence and local fault movement to damage levels and associated damage costs.
