Raute Corporation has received an order worth around Euro 17.5 million for Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) equipment from Steico Społka z o.o., the Polish subsidiary of the leading German timber construction systems and wood fiber insulation manufacturer Steico SE.
The ordered equipment will be Steico's second LVL line delivered to Steico's LVL mill in Czarna Woda, Poland, comprising: veneer drying line, dry veneer grading, composing and scarfing lines as well as LVL lay-up line, pre-press and hot press. The equipment represents the latest technology in its field.
This order is related to the second phase of the LVL manufacturing project, which Steico and Raute initiated in June 2014. The equipment ordered under the first phase of that project was delivered, installed and the mill started up in late summer 2015, with LVL production being ramped up during the winter of 2015/2016.
The total annual capacity of Steico's LVL mill will be 160,000 cubic metres when the new line is in full production, doubling the LVL capacity installed during the first phase in Czarna Woda.
The machinery will be manufactured at Raute's Nastola, Shanghai and Kajaani plants, and delivered during the first half of 2017. The full scale production of the future LVL mill is planned to be reached by mid-2018.
Steico is one of the leading wooden construction material producers in Europe.
