Heinola to supply dryers to UPM Kaukas and JPJ-Wood

26.04.2016 − 

UPM-Kymmene recently placed an order with Finnish Heinola Sawmill Machinery for three automatic HTC-type continuous dryers for the Lappeenranta facility of the Kaukas sawmill in southern Finland. The purpose of the three dryers scheduled to be set up in the next few months is to replace some of the existing systems. Pine will account for the bulk of the sawmill’s output of some 510,000 m³ per year of softwood lumber.

Southern Finnish JPJ-Wood had already placed an order with Heinola at the beginning of March for an HFB-type continuous dryer with a capacity of approximately 50,000 m³ per year. The new facility, scheduled to be put into service in September, augments two continuous dryers installed in 2008.
