Finnish machine constructor Heinola is building a full-profiling sawline for Vostok Resurs in Izhevsk, Udmurt Republic, Russia. The sawline Heinola supplies is part of a larger delivery of an entire sawmill. The lead supplier of the new sawmill is Heinola’s sister company Hekotek.
The line is a contemporary high-speed line, which can saw conifer logs, diameters starting from 120 mm. Initially, the line will have a total capacity of around 250,000 m3 of lumber a year. The line will be controlled by one operator assisted by contemporary Heinola automation.
The work on assembling the machinery has been completed as well as test runs in Heinola, Finland and deliveries to the customer’s factory in Russia. Installation is planned for summer this year and the new line will start production in autumn 2019.
