air drying yard

An important component in the optimal drying process is the generous air drying yard. In this 50.000 m big area an amount of approximately 6.500 m cut wood is prepared for drying, and carefully pre-dried, a procedure that cannot be replaced by kiln drying, either in the sense of quality, nor economicaly.

drying/steam chambers

In ten modern computerized drying chambers (60 - 300 m), an amount of 1200 cubic metres cut wood per filling is carefully dried to the degree of the wood dampness required. A capacity of approximately 700 cubic metres per month is  needed for the steaming process.

heating installation

Highly modern combustion engineering offers the needed heating energy for the drying facility on behalf of the use of bark as a waste product. At the same time a contribution to the environmental conservation is acquired, by the gain of carbondioxide neutral energy.
