The Russian wood-based panels manufacturer Uvadrev-Holding placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant.
At the Uva location, Uvadrev replaces an existing plant with the new complete particleboard plant made by Siempelkamp, which contains a Generation 9 ContiRoll in the format 9' x 32.1m as the core component. The plant is designed for an annual capacity of 500,000 m3. With this investment, Uvadrev not only expands its production capacity, but also optimizes quality and manufacturing costs. It is planned to produce a range of boards in the finished sizes 1,830 x 2,750 mm as well as 2,070 x 2,800 mm, which will be further processed in the furniture industry.
The gluing system is designed to meet the stricter limit for the emission of formaldehyde from wood-based materials, the E05 standard; dry urea is used in the middle layer to reduce formaldehyde levels.
After ordering a particleboard plant with a production range of 300,000 m3 per year from Siempelkamp in 2012, this is the second project that Uvadrev and their German partner are realizing together. Assembly is scheduled to begin in early 2022.
