Press Release 25th January 2018

Fixteri offers an efficient solution for thinning of combustible forestry areas, as untreated forest is exposed to forest fires especially in the dry climate of Southern Europe.

The Fixteri bundler is used as an attachment to forestry machinery. It collects and bundles small trees more cost-effectively than any other technology. Fixteri’s significantly better efficiency in thinning and regeneration felling has been proven in several Finnish and international studies. Find out more about these reports on Fixteri’s website: www.fixteri.fi.

In a young untreated forest, the trees do not grow properly, and small wood will be left unused. Ecological thinning by Fixteri supports the forest industry’s targets and forestry becomes more profitablethan ever before. At the same time, Fixteri creates an infrastructure for the diversified use of the forest and carbon neutrality for society.

Why this harvesting show?

International interest towards this unique Finnish technology has lately risen in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. The Fixteri solution is global: It works as well in the snowy forests of Finland as in chestnut forests on Iberian Peninsula, and wide plantations of Southern Hemisphere. Thus, this harvesting show will be attended by some of the biggest players of the forest and bioenergy sectors from different parts of the world, including Great Britain and Brazil.

Fixteri international harvesting show in Spain demonstrates the whole supply chain of biofuel raw material: From forest thinning to forwarding of bundles, storage and chipping of the wood material, and continuation of logistics towards the bioenergy facility.

Location: 17421 Riudarenes, Girona, Catalonia
Time: Wednesday 31st Jan, from 10:00 (local time)
