Gällö Timber invests SEK 80 million ($9.5 million) in increased kiln capacity and in a new boiler

七月 1, 2016
Gällö Timber, jointly owned by SCA and Persson Invest, invests SEK 80 million ($9.5 million) in increased kiln capacity and in a new boiler. The investment implies an increase of production in the Gällö sawmill in Northern Sweden. Through the investment the present transport of sawn timber from Gällö to Stugun for drying will cease, as SCA Timber says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

“This is wonderful news for us at Gällö Timber”, says Urban Wiklund, Managing Director of Gällö Timber. “With this investment we will increase our annual production from slightly more than 300,000 cubic metres to 350,000. This means that our competitiveness will increase and that our owners believe in us and our continued development.”

The investment comprise a new boiler that will use the residue products from the sawmill as fuel and produce the energy needed for the sawmill’s operation, and a TC-kiln of the same kind as has already been installed in SCA’s sawmills in Bollsta and Tunadal. With the new kiln, all of the sawmill’s production can be dried on the site. The kiln and the rest of the sawmill has the capacity for a substantial increase in production.

Today roughly 50,000 cubic metres of sawn timber is transported from Gällö Timber to Stugun for drying. A substantial part of this is further refined through planing and painting.

“The change in Stugun will affect a couple of the employees, but the current situation will not lead to any redundancies”, says Urban Wiklund. “SCA’s refining operations in Stugun have grown and Stugun is today the biggest site for wood refining in Jämtland. We are the biggest supplier and SCA Stugun is among our biggest customers. Together we make up a strong team with roughly 170 employees in the production and a lot more working in wood supply and forestry.”
