Moelven is investing in five continuous kilns and the Valmatics 4.0 control system to its three sawmills in Scandinavia. It's the most extensive single order the Moelven Group has ever placed with Valutec.
The new continuous kilns will allow Moelven to raise both quality and capacity in the drying process, and the latter is something Moelven needs at its Våler and Mjösbruket sawmills in Norway and Notnäs in Sweden.
Valutec will deliver two FB model continuous kilns each to the Våler and Notnäs sawmills and one to Mjösbruket. Våler already uses Valutec batch kilns as well as the Valmatics control system. The FB model continuous kilns have two separate zones with individual climate control in each.
Moelven also sees opportunities for synergies during project planning, construction and operation.
