Andritz has received an order from the Ilim Group to supply a wood processing plant with two debarking and chipping lines, chip and bark handling equipment, and a SmartWoodyard advanced control system to the Koryazhma mill in the Arkhangelsk region, Russia. Start-up is scheduled for mid-2021.

The new woodyard will replace existing woodroom and chip storage facilities, which have a pneumatic conveying system.

• unique de-icing process for logs in the debarking drums

• horizontally fed HHQ-Chipper

• two HQ-Press bark presses

• chip and bark handling equipment, including chip storage

• SmartWoodyard advanced control system, including Decision Support Wall (DSW) and process optimization system with smart sensors like WoodScan, BarkScan, ChipperEKG, CrusherEKG, and ScanChip wood chip analyzer.
