The purpose of the modernisation is to replace existing frame saws with modern profiling equipment. “This project aims to improve the quality of the products as well as production efficiency as a whole and is the first step in the plant’s modernisation program,” says Viktor Melnik, Investment Director at Ilim Timber LLC. The Ilim Timber branch in Ust-Ilimsk specializes in the production of timber from pine and Siberian larch.
The production capacity of the plant is approximately 600,000 m³ of sawn timber per year. “We thank you for your trust and look forward to a good and long-term cooperation,” says Fredrik Lindkvist, Marketing Manager at AriVislanda. Installation and commissioning of the equipment is planned for the first half of 2021.
