Siempelkamp to supply Uvadrev Holdings with new particleboard plant

Uvadrev-Holding’s production site

Russian wood-based panels manufacturer Uvadrev-Holding has placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant.

After ordering a particleboard plant with a production range of 300,000 m³ per year from Siempelkamp in 2012, this is the second project that Uvadrev and their German partner are realising together. Assembly is scheduled to begin in early 2022.

At the Uva location, Uvadrev will replace an existing plant with the new complete particleboard plant made by Siempelkamp, which contains a Generation 9 ContiRoll® in the format 9′ x 32.1m as the core component. The plant is designed for an annual capacity of 500,000 m³. With this investment, Uvadrev not only expands its production capacity, but also optimises quality and manufacturing costs. It plans to produce a range of boards in the finished sizes of 1,830 x 2,750 mm as well as 2,070 x 2,800 mm, which will be further processed in the furniture industry. The new Siempelkamp plant not only stands for innovative press technology, but also for sustainability: their gluing system is designed to meet the stricter limit for the emission of formaldehyde from wood-based materials, the E05 standard; dry urea is used in the middle layer to reduce formaldehyde levels.

“The decisive factor for this cooperation is the trust we place in Siempelkamp based on a good experience. Our first jointly realised plant exceeds the promised performance. For us, this is the best basis to once again build on the competence of our partner who, as a supplier of complete plants, also has the expertise to precisely assess and realise customer requirements,” said Sergej Ostanin, Project and Production Manager at Uvadrev.
