MiCROTEC to deliver three Finscan scanners to ULK Group’s Pinega sawmill for dry sorting

28.5.2021

MiCROTEC (formerly FinScan) will continue its close cooperation with the Russian ULK Group in delivering three Finscan sorting systems for dry sorting departments at ULK’s new Pinega sawmill to be constructed in the Arkhangelsk region. The Finscan system is an advanced sawn lumber scanner that utilises Buzzard® AI software to detect defects in wood. Thanks to the Buzzard® app, the system detects knots and rot with extremely high precision, and therefore significantly improves the sawn lumber yield. The Pinega sawmill is expected to begin operations in 2023 and manufacture sawn softwood and pellets.

MiCROTEC’s order is part of a sizeable agreement between Lahti-based Jartek and ULK Group on the delivery of sawn lumber processing lines. Jartek will deliver four green sorting lines and three dry sorting lines for sawn lumber processing.

Once complete, the Pinega sawmill will be the largest in northern Europe. The sawmill will handle over two million cubic metres of logs per year, resulting in approximately one million cubic metres of ready sawn lumber and 600 tonnes of pellets.
