Greenplac's eucalyptus MDF panel plant − which is a part of the Asperbras Group − located in the city of Água Clara (MT) has a particular feature: the fusion of Innovatech´s knowledge and experience in Forest Management withthetechnology and innovation of the Inflor Forest system. The system is used for forest management throughout the process: from silviculture all the way to the transport operation.

 Luiz Fellipe Arcalá, Head of Business and Innovation at Innovatech, explains that the solutions for this project are being designed as the various phases come into operation. "We have the entire forest cycle supported by the INFLOR Forest system," he says. Greenplac's forest assets amounts to 36,000 hectares of eucalyptus.

The Inflor Forest solution in this project encompasses all the modules, ensuring information integration. Arcalá emphasizes that this integration gives more consistency to the process and enables deliveries with a less than 5% financial deviation, as the execution of the planning is systematized.

He also emphasizes that "the fully automated harvesting and transportation management − due to the mobility of the operational control via tablets − will prevent operational inefficiencies and bring excellence based mainly on KPIs and action plans. As for the exhaust module, the expectation is also positive, considering the results observed with other customers who have already used INFLOR Forest."
