Construction of the Rauma sawmill is well underway
Metsä Fibre is currently building a new pine sawmill in Rauma, Finland. This will be our most modern and technically advanced sawmill ever and it will begin producing pine sawn timber in the third quarter of 2022. The Rauma sawmill will be a big leap forward in the industry, both in terms of technology and efficiency. It will lead the way to the future of sawn timber production.
Technology delivers efficiency and sustainability
At our new Rauma pine sawmill we are using technology to ensure the most efficient and effective use of wood raw material, and machine vision and AI will be used to get the most and the best from each log. The sawmill will also be integrated into our Rauma pulp mill so that every part of each tree is used and nothing is wasted, not even wood chips or sawdust. 100% of the wood we use is traceable and comes from certified or controlled forests.

Metsä Fibre’s new Rauma sawmill will reach a new level of industrial efficiency and be a frontrunner in technology. Watch the video to find out more.
