Tornator adopts CollectiveCrunch’s forest-AI technology

Espoo, July 1, 2020

Tornator, one of the Europe’s largest private forest owners and sustainability leaders, starts commercial adaptation of Linda Forest service from CollectiveCrunch in Finland and Estonia.

Tornator piloted and tested CollectiveCrunch’s Linda Forest solution in the past months. The piloting and testing successfully concluded in June 2020 for Tornator’s Finnish and Estonian forest lands.

Linda Forest makes use of satellite, LIDAR and process data and utilizes state-of-the-art AI to predict forest inventories. Using Linda Forest, Tornator can reduce its need for field visits, has access to current forestry inventory data at the click of a button, and can plan its harvesting operations more efficiently.

Tornator is a leader in sustainable and responsible use of forest lands. Linda Forest contributes to Tornator’s leadership in the industry. Says Kimmo Kortelainen, Planning Manager at Tornator Oyj: “Digitalisation is key to our commercial and sustainability ambitions. Adopting Linda Forest is an exciting step forward for us and after finalizing the validation we will make the decision of commercial implementation with our business processes.”

Janne Järnstedt, Technical Product Manager at CollectiveCrunch, has been working closely with Tornator on this implementation: “Tornator is a leader in the industry and an important confirmation of our approach. We are looking forward to building a solid relationship.”
