Russian wood-based materials producer ZAO Murom’s OSB plant is up and running. The new OSB line was built as a greenfield project at the site of ZAO Murom in the Vladimir region of Russia. In the middle of the pandemic, the first OSB was produced on the complete plant made by Siempelkamp at the end of November 2020. Thus, the way was paved for the further start-up — despite the extreme winter period with permanent low temperatures of below -30°C and heavy snowfalls.
The innovative OSB line with an annual capacity of more than 280,000 m3 enables Murom to use diverse raw material assortments, including waste from plywood production, another focus of the plant investor. The core piece is a ContiRoll Generation 9 in the 8.5′ x 30.4 m format.
The complete plant includes the combined competence of the Siempelkamp Group: Pallmann and CMC, as front-end specialists within the Group contributed the raw material preparation as well as the screening, gluing, and forming technology. The energy plant and drum dryer were supplied by Büttner, and Sicoplan was responsible for the engineering. Also included are Siempelkamp’s new developments for OSB production which have already proven their positive characteristics in the plant’s performance: the press heating system, a release agent application device for pMDI use, and the “strand catchers.”
