During the last 2 years the Vietnamese company Dan-Viet Investment Co., Ltd – Daviwood and C.F. Nielsen have been working to establish a modern briquetting facility in Can Tho, Vietnam.
C.F. Nielsen has engineered the plant and has selected local and foreign suppliers to deliver the equipment. C.F. Nielsen tasks include project management, engineering, and selection of suppliers, installation and commissioning as well as participation in technical management of the factory.
The project is supported by a grant from the Danish Government Agency – Danida, which has been very helpful in establishing this new venture.
The two companies collaborate on a green energy production project by transforming waste bark and branches into compacted briquettes ready to be used for energy purposes.
The Grand Opening Ceremony took place on 26 January with many international and Vietnamese participants.
The briquetting plant will have a capacity of 4 tons per hour – and the raw material will be logs from Daviwoods own FSC approved plantations. The installation includes 2 BP6510HD briquetting presses with additional equipment from C.F. Nielsen and downsizing, equipment, drying and materials handling equipment from a local supplier. The briquettes will be sold locally and exported.
