Sawmill Equipment to Russian Far East

The Russian sawmill company Asia Les Ltd., operating in the Khabarovsk region, is investing in sawmill equipment from Söderhamn Eriksson. The order from Asia Les comprises a complete small log plant with log intake, debarking, saw line as well as waste handling system. Debarking will be done in two Cambio 500 lines, and the saw line processes the logs by reducing them on four sides and profiling and breaking them down at speeds up to 150 m/min.

The plant will have an annual production capacity of 500,000 m3 logs in two-shift operation. Shipment from Söderhamn Eriksson’s manufacturing facilities will take place in April 2015. The small log line will be installed in parallel with a normal-log line from Söderhamn Eriksson delivered in 2008.
