Klasmann-Deilmann Bioenergy is specialised in the production and sale of biomass for use as an energy source, in wood trading, and in forestry services.
Woodchips are made by cutting (or chipping) larger pieces of wood – branches, forestry or wood-processing residues. Depending on quality, they are used for generating energy and heat or in wood pulp production. Klasmann-Deilmann is also making increasing use of woodchips to produce wood fibre for substrate manufacture.
Klasmann-Deilmann Bioenergy produces and sells high-quality woodchips derived from various tree species. Their technical specifications as an energy source are as follows:
- Water content: 35% – 60%;
- Ash content: 1% – 2%;
- Weight: 300 kg – 450 kg/m3;
- Calorific value: up to 2.2 MWh/t or 7.92 GJ/t.
We provide dependable logistics services for product delivery purposes, and agree delivery terms and conditions directly with our customers.
As well as woodchips, we also sell high-quality sawdust ideally suited for producing pellets, wood pulp, construction materials and briquettes. Long-term agreements with our suppliers ensure the continuous availability of our raw materials. Our logistics services are also available for sawdust.
Our woodchips are produced on site at our short-rotation coppice (SRC) plantations or in the woodlands concerned. Klasmann-Deilmann Bioenergy currently has two mobile chippers and four transporting units.
Our fleet consists of two Volvo trucks equipped with mobile Mus Max 10XL TG wood chippers. These enable us to achieve our annual production capacity of as much as 240,000 m³ of loose woodchips, which can be produced directly on site in any location. For each of the chippers, there are two lorries with walking-floor trailers available for woodchip removal, allowing a continuous and efficient production process.
To store our resources, we have established storage locations at logistically favourable places between our production sites and where our customers are. During the cold season, we deliver direct from our SRC sites and from our storage points.
Klasmann-Deilmann Bioenergy is currently increasing its trading activities involving round timber. We also do business with partners outside the Baltic region, and our customers particularly value our order-specific services.
In Lithuania and Latvia, Klasmann-Deilmann is among the pioneers of close-to-nature forest management as desired by environmentally conscious woodland owners. The main benefits of this approach over conventional forestry methods are as follows:
- Assessment and care of individual trees is tailored to site conditions;
- The harvested timber is of especially high quality;
- Clear-felling is avoided;
- Forest owners generate improved sales revenues from management of their stands;
- Management costs are reduced.
Our forest management services comprise the following:
- Identification of long-term development potential for a given stand;
- Comprehensive cost analysis;
- Marketing of all wood products.
What this involves in practice is, for example, site planning, establishing boundaries, obtaining approvals, and project planning with regard to forest infrastructure.
High-quality raw wood materials can be obtained from regular maintenance of overgrown agricultural land, ditches and embankments. We offer relevant services to farmers, local authorities, forest owners and other customers. Here, too, we use powerful equipment that ensures efficient operations to maximise customer satisfaction.
