Estonia-based Hekotek has made two announcements regarding the development of pellet plants in recent months. In early May, the company announced the development of a new pellet plant in Latvia. In late April, Hekotek announced a contract to double capacity at an existing pellet plant Belarus.
According to Hekotek, it has signed an agreement with 4 Energia to deliver pellet plant equipment for a 120,000-ton pellet plant under development in Brocheni, Latvia. The facility will take in wood waste, including saw dust and wood chips, and low-grade wood, including pulp wood and fuel chips that need debarking and milling, as feedstock.
