Optimally adapted wood waste processing

Baetsen Group

For the Netherlands-based Baetsen Group, Vecoplan has designed and implemented a complete solution for the reliable processing of 200,000 tonnes of wood waste each year. Replacing a competitor module with a Vecoplan pre shredder has decreased energy consumption and increased performance considerably.


In 2007, Vecoplan designed a system that efficiently shreds and separates large quantities of wood waste and reliably removes extraneous materials. Because the output material needs to meet strict quality standards, the customer attaches great importance to the use of durable and reliably technology.


The complete system was planned, implemented and upgraded by Vecoplan. The equipment includes a VVZ 3100 pre-shredder and two VAZ 2500 re-shredders as well as the corresponding conveying and screening technology.


The complete switchover to Vecoplan shredding technology increased throughput by 25 percent. The HiTorc drives have also increased energy efficiency. In addition, the customer benefits from homogeneous reusable materials and thus a homogeneous end product.
