Kaituna Sawmill - a smoothly automated boiler operation
A sawmill tucked away in a forested corner near Blenheim is now fully automated and the boiler operator monitors his "babies" from home, with a real-time camera in the boiler fire streaming live to his cellphone. A software expert does repairs remotely from Europe.
"These new gadgets are the best thing to happen in the boiler industry. I thought I would never get my head around it, but you do. You're learning all the time."
