Kronospan orders additional OSB plant core package from Dieffenbacher, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The contract was signed at the end of May, and commissioning is set for autumn 2018. Kronospan plans on investing Euro 330 million at its Sanem site in Luxembourg over the next four years. Before the planned new construction of a particleboard plant in the second project phase, the existing OSB plant will be partially refurbished and modernized.
The multi-opening plant, in operation since 1996, was one of the first OSB production plants in Western Europe. After more than 20 years of operation, it will be replaced by a continuous production line with CPS+.
In addition to the press, the order also covers the forming station, the forming line, the finishing line (comprising a diagonal saw, large stack formation and large stack storage) as well as the conveyor technology, the filter systems and the press exhaust air treatment. The execution and supervision of the assembly are also included in the Dieffenbacher scope of supply.
This cutting-edge plant was planned entirely using 3D design tools. This allowed Dieffenbacher to fine-tune the plant structure to the conditions at the site, largely avoiding additional preparatory work for Kronospan.
