International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Enviva, one of the leading producers of woody biomass pellets, to supply woodyard equipment, engineering, and field services for two biomass pellet plants, each with a capacity of 500,000 tons per year, to be built in North Carolina, USA.
ANDRITZ will supply several innovative products for manufacturing high-quality mini-chips from round timber at high production rates. At the heart of the wood processing line is the HHQ30 chipper with TurnKnife system from ANDRITZ Iggesund Tools. This combination of chipper and knife system produces the highest percentage of accept chips and the thinnest chip on the market.
