New saw line to Bergene Holm

Bergene Holm’s Nidarå division chooses Söderhamn Eriksson as a partner for the construction of a new saw line. The delivery includes a straight bandsaw line with edging, log intake, debarking and bi-product handling, worth some EUR 12 million. The customer focuses on high sawing yield, which is reflected in the choice of breakdown technology. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2013 and start-up for August 2013.

Bergene Holm is Norway’s largest privately owned lumber producer with five sawmills and three planer mills totaling 400 employees and annual sales reaching EUR 100 million.
