Norbord commissions new OSB line in Inverness

Within the last months the equipment for NORBORD Europe’s GBP 95m mill expansion at Inverness has been installed and started up. The equipment includes the forming line, the screening, blending and resin system, the heat energy system, dryer and WESP stack.

HOLTEC has been responsible for the wood room starting from the infeed system up to the strand conveyors into the wet bin. Coordinating the delivery, installation and start-up of the whole equipment were quite a logistical undertaking at site.

NORBORD made the first board during September 2017.  With the new continuous press in operation the capacity of OSB production in Inverness increases significant. With a worldwide output of 7.2 m m³ NORBORD has become number 1 in the OSB industry.
