Kastamonu Entegre-Siempelkamp: new mega site in Turkey

The business partnership – since 1969 – between Kastamonu Entegre and Siempelkamp has resulted in a new highlight. The Turkish wood-based panel producer placed an order for an 8′ x 63.7 meters Mdf wood-based panel plant with “ContiRoll”. This makes it the longest of the 32 “ContiRolls” and the longest continuous press on the Turkish market. With this project, the two partners are setting completely new standards in the wood-based panel industry; the installation of the new press line will create another superlative mega site in Turkey.

Thus far, four of these mega sites exist in Turkey, all of which are equipped with Siempelkamp “ContiRoll” press technology. With the new production plant at the Balıkesir location, Kastamonu Entegre is currently already developing its second mega site in Turkey. Since 2005, Kastamonu Entegre has been operating a 7′ x 42.1 meters “ContiRoll” particleboard plant with an annual output of more than 600,000 m³ at the Balıkesir site in the west of the country. The other mega site is operated by Kastamonu Entegre at the location in Gebze, where Hdf, Mdf and particleboard are produced as raw boards on currently three continuous press lines and various plants are operated for further processing or finishing of these products.

In Balıkesir, an Mdf plant is now being built which will represent several superlatives. Its press length of 63.7 meters achieves the record “longest ContiRoll press line in Turkey”. With 65 tons/atro per hour, the largest fiber dryer in Turkey will also be installed by Siempelkamp’s subsidiary Büttner, which ensures the optimal utilization of the press capacity for Hdf production. The “Generation 9 ContiRoll” press realizes a wide production range: standard Mdf, as well as especially light Mdf (L-Mdf) and Hdf are produced. The products are used in the furniture and flooring industries and are marketed both locally and in export markets.
