Graanul Invest adopted the new bulk wood measurement system also in its Latvian factories

As of August, four Latvian wood pellet factories of Graanul Invest Group adopted the new bulk wood measurement system LoadMon, which enables measuring timber accurately and quickly.

The globally innovative LoadMon automatic roundwood or bulk wood measurement system has been successfully used in the Group’s factory situated in Imavere for over a year already. As the unique system that creates a 3D image of timber has proven its efficiency, all the Estonian factories of the Group have successfully adopted the system.

It is a solution where measuring is carried out with sensors installed on a gate and which create a point cloud or 3D image of the load in just a few minutes. Measurement results are not dependent on the human factor and are available to the parties in the electronic system following the measurement.

“We are actively looking for new solutions for our factories in order to make processes more effective, transparent and environmentally friendly. An honest and accurate measurement system is sure to provide security to all parties,” said Jaano Haidla, member of the management board of Graanul Invest Group.

Bulk wood measurement systems have already been implemented in the Latvian factories Incukalns, Launkalne, Gulbene and Jekapbils, and the plan is to also adopt the new measurement system in the remaining two Latvian factories and the factory situated in Lithuania within a year.

The system LoadMon was developed by the IT company Almic in cooperation with Graanul Invest.
