Kronospan orders additional OSB plant core package from Dieffenbacher

09/08/2017 - 02:06 PM

Kronospan plans on investing 330 million euros at its Sanem site in Luxembourg over the next four years. Before the planned new construction of a particleboard plant in the second project phase, the existing OSB plant will be partially refurbished and modernized.

The plant, in operation since 1996, was one of the first OSB plants in Western Europe. After more than 20 years of operation, the plant’s multi-opening press will now be replaced by a continuous production line which includes the CPS+ continuous press.

The order also includes the forming station, the forming line, the finishing line (comprising a diagonal saw, large stack formation and large stack storage) as well as the conveyor technology, the filter systems and the press exhaust air treatment. The execution and supervision of the assembly are also included in the Dieffenbacher scope of supply.

Kronospan’s plant was planned entirely using 3D design tools, allowing Dieffenbacher to fine tune the plant structure to the conditions at the site, largely avoiding additional preparatory work for Kronospan.

The contract was signed at the end of May, and commissioning is set for autumn 2018.

The project continues the long-standing collaboration between Dieffenbacher and Kronospan, especially in the area of OSB. Sanem is the sixth OSB project completed by Dieffenbacher for Kronospan in under 15 years.

The panel manufacturer also produces OSB panels in Jihlava (Czech Republic), Riga (Latvia), Brasov (Romania), Mogilev (Belarus) and Strzelce Opolskie (Poland)—all using equipment from Dieffenbacher.
