HALDEN, Norway , January 21, 2022 (press release) –

On 19 January 2022, Norwegian Minister of Transportation Jon-Ivar Nygård officially opened the newly established Hauerseter timber terminal.

- The opening of this terminal is an excellent example of collaboration across the value chain. We need more such low-cost projects in the future, said Mr.Nygård.

The Minister attended the official opening of the timber terminal, which was established in collaboration between Norske Skog at Saugbrugs, Nortømmer and Viken Skog through the company Tømmerterminal Hauerseter AS. The first timber transporters delivered timber to Hauerseter on 23 December, and the first timber train is scheduled to run during January.

- The green transition requires that our inbound and outbound transport from the mills takes place with emission-free transport solutions. While we achieve lower carbon emissions and costs, there will now also be fewer heavy trucks transporting timber on our roads, says Sven Ombudstvedt, CEO of Norske Skog.

Between 100 000 and 150 000 cubic meters of timber will be transported annually via the timber terminal, mainly spruce pulpwood to Norske Skog Saugbrugs in Halden. This amounts to somewhere between 2 500 and 3 750 timber truckloads a year.
