Over the coming 18 months the Hermal Group will build a new multi-million-dollar facility, as part of their $190 million-dollar investment in Tasmania’s plantation-based hardwood timber products.
Using proprietary and innovative technologies and new industry processes this venture will completely re-invent standard plantation and milling practices. Establishing Tasmania as a world leader in quality renewable plantation Kiln Dried timber products.
At full capacity the mill will process in excess of 300,000 cubic meters of plantation hardwood per year.And the waste produced will be converted into direct injection bio fuel, for dispatchable renewable electricity generation
The largest plantation Hardwood mill and one of the most environmentally efficient mills of its type anywhere in the world, from a commercial, and renewable resource.
This project will require an investment of $190m to complete the facility.
