Kuhmo Oy selects HEINOLAs new fully automatic high capacity HTC progressive kiln
Kuhmo Oy has ordered a fully automatic high capacity 2-zone progressive kiln type HTC with an annual capacity of ca. 65 000 m3 from Heinola Sawmill Machinery Inc. The drying kiln can be used for drying of pine and spruce timber with thicknesses of 16 – 50 mm from sawn green timber to the final moisture of 12 – 18 %. The turnkey delivery consists also energy measuring system, high capacity heat recovery unit, pressure frames and HEINOLA’s advanced Dry Kiln Control System. The new progressive kiln will be taken into production early 2018. This investment eliminates the bottleneck in Kuhmo Oy’s process and thereby enables increase in production.
“We compared different suppliers, but ended up choosing HEINOLA as they provided the best technical and economical solution”, explains Kuhmo Oy’s MD Tommi Ruha.“HEINOLA offered the highest capacity connected to our load transfer tracks. HEINOLA’s fully automatic kiln was also a major selection argument. Based on earlier drying kiln and other projects, we trust HEINOLA’s project management, technical support and maintenance services!”
Heinola Sawmill Machinery Inc. expresses its thanks to Kuhmo Oy for their confidence to us!
