Svenska Skogsplantor Machine For Planting Forest Plants Goes Into New Phase
The development of the Plantma X, machine for planting, is moving forward. In November, field tests will begin and in spring 2020 the machine is expected to be put into operation
Work on the upcoming planting machine, Plantma X, which is being developed by Grangärde Konsult & Innovation in collaboration with Sveaskog and Svenska Skogsplantor will enter the next phase.
– Development work goes according to project plan. There are only a few components left to assemble and later in November field tests will begin, says Roger Johansson, Business Area Manager at Svenska Skogsplantor.
The first prototype of the planter is planned to be put into operation in the spring of 2020 when it will prepare and plant approximately 400 hectares on Sveaskog’s fields in the southern and northern Bergslagen. During the summer, Plantma X will operate in southern Norrland and in Västerbotten.
– Developing this machine for planting is a big step towards improving the efficiency and profitability of the rejuvenation business, concludes Roger Johansson.
