For the modernization of the site the company has chosen the equipment of the firm “Springer” (Austria). 

Springer has been operating in the Russian market for over 30 years and is the European leader in manufacturing equipment for the sawmill and woodworking industry. The equipment is of high quality, technical excellence, reliability and ease of maintenance.

The first step in the modernization of sawmill production was the commissioning of the modern line of acceptance and sorting of logs by Springer (Austria) in July 2017. The automated line allows sorting about 600 thousand m3 of logs per year.

The second stage of the modernization of the site was the commissioning of a new sawmill complex, which includes the debarking machine by Valon Kone Oy (Finland), the sawing line by Linck Holzverarbeitungstechnik GmbH (Germany) and the green sorting line by Springer (Austria) in July 2017.

The sawing line allows to saw over 500 thousand m3 of logs per year.

The green sorting line with a capacity of about 300 thousand m3 of sawn timber per year. The line is equipped with two saws for preliminary trimming of boards and 35 vertical pockets for sorting central and side boards.

Modernization of the drying complex consisted in the implementation of modern high-tech drying kilns of the firm “Valutec” (Finland) in December 2017.

The company is a reliable, proven supplier of drying equipment.

Based on the experience of other production units, it was decided to increase the drying capacity of the site – 3 and mount 5 2-zone drying tunnels and 12 drying kilns. Productivity of kilns over 300 thousand m3 per year.

Dry timber sorting and packaging line produced by Springer. To determine the quality of timber was selected similar to other areas of the system «FinScan».

Due to the increase in production in August 2019, another tunnel (6th) was launched to dry thin lumber from «Valutec».

In the course of the enterprise’s activities (including debarking, cutting, and sawn timber production) a significant amount of wood waste is generated, which must be disposed of with the least cost and minimal harm to the environment.

To this end, it was decided to build on the site – 3 heat and power facilities (Hot water boiler) for burning wood waste, providing the optimal parameters of emissions into the atmosphere.


In May 2017, boiler rooms were launched.
Water heated by flue gases from boiler plants is supplied to heat exchangers in which, by means of convective heat exchange, the secondary circuit water is heated, which meets the needs of drying capacities and heat supply systems of the plant’s workshops.
The main fuel for the boiler house is wet bark coming directly from the sawmill.
POLYTECHNIK (Austria) was chosen as the supplier of the main equipment. When designing and building, the operating experience of equipment of CHPP-1 and CHPP-2 was taken into account, and a number of changes were made. To ensure the technological process of the site – 3 thermal energy, two identical installations for the incineration of wood waste with a capacity of 8 MW each are installed in the water-heating boiler house.
