Finland , September 2, 2022 (press release) –

Koskisen has signed an agreement with Valutec Oy for the supply of the P-OTC channel dryer. The new channel dryer will increase our drying capacity with the increase in the capacity of the new sawmill, and this dryer investment is also part of the implementation of the PTS plan for our dryers.

The new channel will be launched in April 2024.

The dryer will be equipped with the latest VALMATICS 4.0 control system, which includes, among other things, the possibility of optimizing capacity, quality and energy consumption at the same time.

In connection with the investment, the control system of the existing dryers will also be updated to VALMATICS 4.0 version.

The investment is part of a programme to turn Järvelä into one of the most modern sawmills in Finland, with a capacity of up to 500,000 cubic metres of finished sawn timber in the future. As part of the new operation, the goal is to move all drying under one roof – away from forklift transfers.
