Holmen has signed an agreement with the Jönköping company Cind for the supply of measuring rigs, cameras and technology, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Through an advanced three-dimensional image analysis of the forest company’s wood deliveries, Holmen will be able to increase the efficiency of transport and boost the added value of the wood.
The first measuring rig will be installed at the train terminal in Vännäs, Sweden. Then a rig will be installed at Holmen’s paper mill in Hallstavik, followed by one at the paper mill in Braviken.
“This is a climate-smart solution that makes wood scanning more accurate and the whole process more efficient. Unmanned measurement terminals offer the possibility to be open around the clock, creating greater accessibility and fewer queues. In this way, we can make better use of transport resources, which is good for both the work environment and the climate,” says Andreas Rastbäck, Marketing Director at Holmen Skog.
Holmen is a forest industry group that manufactures paperboard, paper and wood products and runs forestry and energy production operations.
