The new thermal oil furnace and revamped dryer system at Norbord's plant in Cowie, Scotland was installed, tested and back on line on schedule (after a 12 day shut-down) and with no accidents. The £7 million project involved more than 100 contractors on site dismantling and removing the old plant and installing new equipment. The project took the equivalent of 15,000 man hours to complete and involved up to 20 trades working across the site.

Norbord also installed a dust-cleaning system so that waste wood dust generated at the site could be used as the primary fuel source.
