The director of the Podporozhsky wood processing enterprise, Kolomensky, recently made significant investments in the processing of non-commercial timber that does not have a stable demand in the domestic market. Realizing that his fellow countrymen will need firewood for many more years, and wood cutting and splitting is an expensive and troublesome job, he ordered a modern wood-splitting line in Finland at 60 thousand euros. Hakki Pilke has been a world leader in the production of automatic firewood chopping equipment for almost 4 decades. Representatives of the manufacturer personally came to Podporozhye to launch new equipment and train operators to work on it. According to them, the line is capable of processing up to 40 cubic meters of firewood per shift, and Region became their first customer in Russia. The wood-splitting machine operates from the mains or tractor, it is easy to operate, safe, and reliable. According to rough estimates, with this equipment, the company of Alexander Kolomensky will be able to offer tens of thousands of firewood cubic meters per year. It will permanently supply fuel to budgetary institutions in rural areas that are heated by firewood. Settlement leaders are interested in this opportunity and are awaiting price offers. According to preliminary data, a truck of chopped firewood will cost about five thousand rubles within the boundaries of Podporozhye. For the other settlements, transportation costs will be added. For many people in our area, it is a long-awaited opportunity to stock up firewood without damage to a family budget as until recently, a truck of firewood cost twenty thousand rubles. "Region" not only helps local residents and occupies a new niche in the region, but at the same time, it has found a possibility to process aspen, which is important for the enterprise as a whole.
