A key energy source in several regions.
Wood remains one of the most important sources of energy worldwide. Heavily forested countries in Europe include Sweden, Finland and Latvia. Latvia is the country that utilises the most wood as a proportion of total domestic energy production, at 35 percent. In Germany, on the other hand, wood accounts for only about three percent of total energy production.
The following types of wood are currently used in energy production: low-value varieties from forestry, short-rotation plantation-grown wood, residual timber from the wood processing industry, and mature timber. In short-rotation plantations, wood is produced from rapidly growing trees with high stock growth capacity. Willows and poplars play an important role, as do occasionally alders and robinias.
For information on the mechanical processes involved in the harvesting of these wood varieties, see under JAGUAR wood chopping.
For the methodical and sustainable management of forests, it is extremely important that machine application is both economically efficient and gentle on the ground. These attributes are embodied by the XERION TRAC VC, which succeeds in winning over forestry specialists time and again. In addition to high engine outputs, the exceptional performance of the PTO shaft also plays a major role. Supported by the rotating cab, which enables operators to alternate between forward and rear-facing configurations in less than one minute, the XERION is also the ideal machine for special applications.
