Forestry Services

The forestry industry faces its own unique challenges. Orbis understands the importance of plant uptime and the need for reliable power systems. We know the amount of waste created by unexpected outages is problematic, and do everything we can to prevent downtime so you can maintain production.

Orbis also has experience utilizing the unique benefits of forestry. We’ve been able to equip some of our customers with co-generation projects where saw mills will burn waste wood to generate additional power.
