Setra Trävaror selects Saxlund for Långshyttan fuel handling system

In Sweden, Saxlund Group AB’s subsidiary, Saxlund International Holding AB, has signed an additional contract with Setra Trävaror AB, a subsidiary of wood products major Setra Group for the delivery of a fuel handling system for a portable biomass-fired heat plant also to be supplied by Saxlund.

Located in Dalarna, central Sweden, Setra Trävaror’s Långshyttan facility produces glulam beams from spruce. The annual production capacity is around 48 000 m3 (photo courtesy Setra).

In July 2019, Setra Trävaror appointed Saxlund International Holding to supply a 3 MW portable biomass-fired heat plant to Setra’s glulam plant in Långshyttan. To be delivered during the winter of 2019/2020, Setra has also chosen to place an order, worth around SEK 5.5 million (≈ EUR 510 445) for a fuel handling system for the heating plant.

Saxlund will manufacture the transportable facilities during the autumn for delivery during the winter of 2019/2020. Now we will also start manufacturing material handling equipment consisting of Saxlund’s Push Floor and conveyors in order to be able to supply the new portable heat plant with the dry woodchip fuel. This will be one of several facilities that Saxlund has delivered to Setra during the last ten years, which shows that Saxlund has very good products that Setra is pleased with. It is an exciting project in Långshyttan and we at Saxlund are very happy to be involved in securing Setra’s demand for heat, said Stefan Wallerman, CEO of Saxlund Group AB.
