Project: Binderholz Nordic Oy

Relocation of a sawmill from the Netherlands to Finland

Project no: 18200302

Description: Relocation of a sawmill

Place/Federal state: Dismantling in Katwijk/NL and reassembly in Lieksa/FI

Time frame: February to November 2018

Staff: up to 25 experts


The apertures will be enlarged, and extra steel supports will be built in as w ell as longer wooden profiles utilised. In this way, the steel girders can be reutilised. Good preparation leads to a good start with good cooperation! “After concluding the dismantling, the hall has to be delivered broom clean. Subsequent to this, mushrooms are to be cultivated on this compound.” To optimally carry out this pr oject of many months in the individual steps, five project groups with check mark plans were formed. The assembly manager Rene Wachholz says: “We have the saw retrieval team, the profiling machines team, the line 100 and line 200 sawn wood sorting team and the truck loading team.” Together with the site supervisor Wilfried Pahl, he will coordinate the project groups. Our project management adds to this: “Our client speaks German. In Finland itself, there are a lot of Austrians working. This facilitates communication and cooperation.” The entire project is subject to a very tight schedule with individual deadline milestones which cannot be overstepped.


“The special thing about this relocation is that all the steel constructions and facility areas of the sawmill were entirely fused with each other. Therefore, the dismantling had to be doubly thought through” - Wiel van Wissen, project manager Convoi.
