Ponsse to start cooperation with Moscow State University

The Moscow State Forest University will launch in cooperation with Ponsse a training programme using modern harvesting technology. The goal is to offer extensive training in the cut-to-length method in cooperation with the biggest forestry university in Russia

"In Russia, as well as in most parts of the world, tree-length harvesting has become the dominant method. However, the Moscow State Forest University has seen a development that is prevailing in other markets. The cut-to-length method is continuously gaining ground over the tree-length method as the benefits of the environmentally friendly and efficient cut-to-length method are undisputable," says Ville Siekkinen, President and CEO of OOO Ponsse, Russia. According to Siekkinen, Russia wants to be-come a leader in utilising modern harvesting technology. "The Moscow State Forest University wanted a partner with whom they would be able to take their forestry training to a new level," Siekkinen continues.

Ponsse wants to be actively involved in the development of the business in Russia, and it sees the Moscow State University as having an important role as a developer and future builder of the Russian forest industry and harvesting. The opening ceremony for the new training facilities was held on 20 September 2007.
