Segezha Group’s Lesosibirsk Sawmills and Woodworking Plant (LDK No.1) has signed a contract with AS Hekotek to supply equipment for its pellet production facility. The investment is valued at approximately 10.1 million Euros, and the production capacity is projected at 100 thousand tons per year. The facility is scheduled to be online in Q2 of 2023.

According to Artyom Samukhin, “The facility will be located on the plant’s premises and will consist of three production lines. The sawdust and process chips (up to 270 thousand m3 per year) will be used as raw materials. A mixture of bark and chips is to be used as fuel for the heating units. After the new production lines are launched, LDK No.1’s total fuel pellet capacity will hit 210.5 thousand tons.”

This will be Segezha’s third site in Siberia. The other two sites currently active in Krasnoyarsk Krai are Ksilotek-Sibir LLC (110.5 thousand tons) and Novoyeniseiskiy Wood Chemical Complex (60 thousand tons).
