Holmen AB, the Stockholm Sweden based company, is investing SEK 70 million ($ 8 million) in a new drying plant which will increase its drying capacity at their Iggesund Sawmill from 400,000 to 500,000 m3. The new drying plant will feature what is known as a tunnel dryer. It is significantly more energy efficient than the old drier it will be partially replacing. The greater drying capacity will be primarily used for drying wood products for the joinery industry.
