Peab builds an extension to SCA’s saw mill in Bollstabruk

The project comprises building a new, modern sorting line that in the future can double production in the saw mill. The sorting line is the part of the sawing process where timber is sorted for quality before delivery. The project also includes groundwork and building a new workshop and a storehouse.

”We work in close cooperation with our customer. We have experience from previous projects with SCA and together we have developed a work method that functions very well in this kind of extensive, complex project,” says Jörgen Eriksson, Region Manager Peab.  

”This investment means we can increase production by 50,000 m3 sawn product, says Johan Olofsson, manager of SCA’s sawmill in Bollstabruk. We will also lower our costs since we won’t have to sort our products in two older lines anymore. Instead production in the saw mill will be rational from start to finish.”

The project is a traditional contract in partnering. Construction will begin in November 2019 and is expected to be completed in the autumn of 2022.

The project will be order registered in the fourth quarter 2019.
