The Environmental Impact Assessment Delegation has granted the sawmill group Bergkvist Siljan permission to increase the production of sawn wood products at the Insjön sawmill in Sweden with approximately 60%, from 400 000 to 650,000 m3 per year.
The decision means that Bergkvist Siljan gradually will increase the production in a first phase from 400,000 to 500,000 m3 sawn wood products.
“We see a significant increase in global demand of sawn wood products. The demand is driven by consumers choosing sustainable materials to a larger extent. In addition, the technology to build tall buildings in wood has developed,” says Anders Nilsson, CEO of Bergkvist Siljan.
Bergkvist Siljan is a leading Swedish sawmilling group supplying sawn wood products to customers mainly in East Asia, Western Europe, and North Africa.
