Jartek Invest Oy delivers a modern sorting facility to Junnikkala Oy’s sawmill in Oulu. The delivery consists of both green sorting and dry sorting plants with peripherals. Automation installation for the sorting system is delivered by Jartek AI Oy. The delivery is the biggest domestic project in the company’s history, being worth about twenty million euros. When finished, the need for pine and spruce logs of Oulu sawmill is about 700 000 cubic meters.
Both green sorting and dry sorting lines are equipped with the latest mechanics, automation and machine vision innovations. The delivery will utilize solutions based on artificial intelligence. The plant represents modern technology, including automatic load and stick transfer equipment.
“It is an honour to be able to participate in construction of a new Finnish sawmill with such a large delivery. Junnikkala clearly appreciates a local partnership. Jartek would like to thank for your trust!”, says Kari Puustinen, Sales Director of Jartek.
The project was quickly taken from the initial concept to the contract phase. “Jartek was helping us since the initial plant concept, which was a big factor for us. The choice of Jartek was supported by good domestic references and local expertise”, says Kalle Junnikkala, CEO of Junnikkala Oy.
The project has got off to a fast start and the design phase has already started. The installations will begin in the last quarter of 2023. It is also planned to saw the first log as early as 2023.
