Hekotek signed new contracts – two log sorting lines are to be supplied to the sawmills of Eastern Siberia (Irkutsk and Krasnoyarsk regions).

One of the two lines will be produced for the new sawmill to be soon launched in Magistralny village of the Irkutsk region. In this project realisation Hekotek is a partner of the leading German supplier of sawmilling technology – Linck, which is the project prime contractor. On former occasions Hekotek and Linck have experienced participation in the same sawmill construction projects: in Arkhangelsk (Sawmill 25), in the Irkutsk region (LDK Igirma) and the Far East (TerneyLes).

As early as end of June the new log sorting line is to be delivered to the customer, its launch to be completed before Siberian frosts. The launch of the complete sawmill with the annual capacity of 120 thousand cubic meters of sawn timber is planned several months afterwards.

The second line is to be delivered to the largest sawmill in Russia (annual capacity making up over 500 thousand cubic meters of sawn timber) – LDK 1 in the town of Lesosibirsk in Krasnoyarsk region. The timelines of the equipment delivery and launch are almost simultaneous with those announced for the 1st project
