Wood processing industry settles to the east of the Ural Mountains MDF plant for Pavlovskiy DOK – wood-processing combine

Krefeld, January 24, 2017 – 80 % of the Russian wood resources can be found east of the Ural Mountains. Nevertheless only 20 % of the wood harvested in Russia comes from this region while a highly modern wood-based materials industry has established itself primarily in the west of the country. This is changing with the construction of an innovative MDF plant by the Russian timber group Pavlovskiy DOK approximately 2,000 km to the east of the Urals, thus, opening previously unused potentials. The plant is built not far from Novosibirsk, close to Barnaul, an administrative center and important transport hub, and with more than 600,000 inhabitants, it is the largest city in the Altai region.

The construction work in the nearby city of Pavlovsk has already started and the planning activities of the equipment suppliers are in full swing. The main production equipment, ordered from Siempelkamp, will be loaded with innovative technology “made in Krefeld” and primarily backed by energy-saving systems. The plant will be equipped with an optimized sifter concept for fibers, the new drive technology Ecodrive as well as with the indispensable resin-saving Ecoresinator.

With innovative pressure distribution plates, an extended cylinder bed and many new equipment features, the press will operate virtually isobaric and will manufacture boards with unprecedented quality for the entire product range from 2.5 mm to 40 mm.

The Belgium Siempelkamp subsidiary Sicoplan is responsible for the complete planning of the plant including the front-end area of the production line. The Siempelkamp scope of supply consists of a sifter, resin blending system, forming and press line including a 9’ ContiRoll® press, Generation 8, with optimal prerequisites for a possible future extension, cooling and stacking line, automatic intermediate storage, sanding line, and cut-to-size line. Last but not least, Siempelkamp will also supply the automation and drive technology with Prod- IQ® control technology which allows professional trending, commission evaluations as well as laboratory data and downtime management.

Another company of the Siempelkamp Group also contributes significantly to making this project a success. Siempelkamp’s subsidiary Büttner Energie- und Trocknungstechnik will supply the fiber dryer and energy plant. A 50 MW solid fuel firing system will generate the thermal energy for the processes and the building. This concept makes the location entirely independent from fossil fuels.

The installation is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2017; the first board is forecast to be pressed in summer of 2018.
