Ponsse begins cooperation with the Moscow State Forest University. The goal is to offer extensive training in the cut-to-length method in cooperation with the biggest forestry university in Russia.

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 and harvesting industry.

Ponsse launches a 10-wheel forwarder in October.

Ponsse has been involved in the development of wood harvesting technology for soft peat soil together with the Finnish state forest enterprise Metsähallitus and the Finnish Forest Research Institute. During the project, a prototype that permits profitable and environmentally friendly harvesting on soil with poor bearing capacity is developed. The concept is based on a 10-wheel, five-axle forest machine and a supporting track solution, which together significantly reduce the surface pressure imposed on the ground as compared with conventional solutions.
