8 August 2018

The Portuguese-Chilean joint venture Sonae Arauco has made a belated gift to its Beeskow site for its 50th anniversary. Under the project name‚ ‘Beeskow50+’ – the plus stands for the future of the site 100km southeast of Berlin – a state-of-the-art particleboard plant from Dieffenbacher will be built beginning March 2019.

The scope of delivery includes a three-head forming station, the forming line and a 42m long CPS+ continuous press with an emissions control system. In addition, Dieffenbacher is supplying the raw board handling and storage systems, sanding line, strapping and extraction systems, and is responsible for the electrical control, transport and assembly supervision.

“Our 22-year-old MDF line with the Dieffenbacher CPS still produces reliably and with the best quality, so we look forward to the new project,” said Fernando Oliveira, group technology director at Sonae Arauco,
