Russian wood-based panel producer Uvadrev orders new particleboard plant
Here's to good further cooperation: The Russian wood-based panels manufacturer Uvadrev-Holding placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant. This is the second time that the holding company has decided in favor of a plant from the German partner and its competence in supplying plants from a single source.
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 new Siempelkamp plant not only stands for innovative press technology, but also for sustainability: their 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. "The decisive factor for this cooperation is the trust we place in Siempelkamp based on a good experience. Our first jointly realized plant exceeds the promised performance. For us, this is the best basis to once again build on the competence of our partner who, as
a supplier of complete plants, also has the expertise to precisely assess and realize customer requirements," says Sergej Ostanin, Project and Production Manager at Uvadrev.
