Katam Technologies signs contract with the global wood, pulp and paper company CMPC
Katam has been awarded a contract worth more than US$100.000 to assist with forestry decision support in Chile. The work will be carried out through 2022.
Katam and CMPC have been collaborating over the last three years. CMPC has used Katam’s technology to perform everyday processes in smaller areas. This is now scaled up to a fully operational forest management service over the next 12 months, covering many thousands of hectares.
CMPC will collect forestry data using smartphones and drones. Katam’s cloud-based forest analysis system uses AI algorithms to deliver detailed high-resolution information to CMPC, which they will use to manage, execute and follow up on their forestry operations, with expected increased productivity and quality.
Katam’s CEO Krister Tham: “We are happy and proud to have won CMPC’s confidence and that they have decided to use our cloud service in their daily operations”.
