The ambitious goal of this cooperation was the development of OSB Advanced, an innovative product produced on an industrial scale in a way that conserves resources.

With the product OSB Advanced and the new plant, CJSC ‘Murom’ will fully utilise round timber resources used in plywood production for its wood based material production, thus saving considerable production costs. With OSB Advanced, CJSC ‘Murom’ will be able to offer a formaldehyde-free OSB board which, due to its outstanding mechanical properties, is increasingly used in interior design as well as in the furniture industry.

Siempelkamp from Krefeld will produce the core of the plant: the ContiRoll Generation 9, with a length of 30.4m and a production width of 8.5ft.

With the new investment, CJSC ‘Murom’ will produce 50,000m² of OSB Advanced boards daily, mainly for national demand. This will more than double the production capacity of CJSC ‘Murom’ to 550,000m³/year.

The start of installation at the plant is imminent with commissioning scheduled for the end of 2019. Regular production will get underway in the spring of 2020.
