Hekotek continues projects in France, supplying equipment for wood pellets manufacture. One of the recent projects was successfully completed in the summer of 2020, and the next one is planned to be completed next summer.

Hekotek completed its first project in France in 2013 – for the Biosylva SAS plant (Cosne-Cours-sur-Loire) a line for low-quality log debarking and feeding them into a chipper was delivered and successfully launched.

Biosylva has been successfully operating to the present day, and in 2021, in the second half of summer in the Auvergne region, the company plans to launch the next pellet plant, where Hekotek is to supply a similar line for debarking of raw materials and feeding them for chipping.

In autumn 2020, we launched a new wood pellet plant for our long-time customer, Société Européenne des Bois SAS (Saint-Amans-Soult) sawmill, where several years ago, in 2014, we already supplied equipment for logs in-feed to the sawline, as well as conveyors for sawmill residuals.

Our French representative Finnso Bois has greatly contributed to the success of both new projects. Still, the success of our first projects is equally important.
