On 29th June 2017, Södra announced that it is investing about SEK 35 million in a new boiler and wood drying facility at its small-diameter timber sawmill in Orrefors, which will enable production to increase in the future. The supplier is Fröseke Industriservice.
Currently, there is insufficient boiler capacity, which means that Södra has to sell some goods undried. The investment will enable the company to dry the entire sawn volume.
The two existing biofuel boilers that currently serve the sawmill are to be replaced by a new, larger biofuel boiler of 6 MW, instead of the current 2.5 MW. The change of boiler will also enable the simultaneous expansion of wood drying through the addition of six chamber dryers. Following the investment, the sawmill will go from a drying capacity of about 60,000 cubic metres to approximately 105,000 cubic metres.
The new facility will be put into operation in 2018.
