CASE IMPRESSIONS

CUSTOMER BENEFITS

Only shortly before the contract was awarded Plevin asked Vecoplan® about an overall solution for a high-performance, efficient waste wood processing plant with high output quality and minimum fines production. On the basis of leading recycling and shredding technology, a corresponding plant was designed, implemented quickly and placed in service. The result: All there quirements were met and surpassed.

Case Plevin EN

As Engineering Manager, I was convinced that the Slow Speed Re- Shredding offered by Vecoplan®, was key to minimising fines production. Vecoplan®`s solution is also incredibly efficient, thanks to their patented HiTorc® drive technology. The entire plant is fully automated and can exceed the specified 60 tph.
