BR-Wood invests in new sawmill from USNR
USNR’s European headquarters, located in Söderhamn, Sweden, has signed a contract with the Belarusian company BR-Wood LLC for the supply of a complete sawmill. BR-Wood is the largest wood processing company in Belarus.
The contract includes all equipment for log handling, debarking, saw line, edger line, lumber sorting, and residuals handling. All optimization and PLC control systems will also be supplied by USNR. Deliveries will begin in 2020, with commissioning in 2021.
"This order is a testament to USNR’s competence as an integrator and single-source supplier: all critical systems and components will be delivered and supported by us. The customer appreciates having a single contract partner for the entire equipment supply. This, and the fact that the customer values uptime, production capacity, and the long-term stability of our company, was clearly to our advantage in securing this order.” - Johan Johansson, CEO for USNR AB, Sweden.
BR-Wood is targeting a log volume of 200,000 m3 initially, with further investment in phase 2 that will see the implementation of additional log line and green sorting equipment to realize the goal of 400,000 m3 annual volume.
USNR is proud to be the major supplier for such an important investment project for this region.
