Andritz has received an order from Xuan Mai Paper Co. Ltd. to supply a PrimeLineCOMPACT S1800 tissue machine for its production line PM2 at its mill located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The tissue machine will enable the production of high-quality tissue grades made of either 100% virgin or 100% deinked pulp (DIP). Start-up is scheduled for 2024.
The tissue machine will have a design speed of 1,800 m/min, a width of 2.85 m and a design capacity of 72 admt/d. The suction pressure roll will be covered with a polysoft polyurethane cover for high-performance dewatering. The PrimeDry Steel Yankee (16 ft. diameter) in combination with a steam-heated COMBO hood enables highly efficient drying with substantial energy savings.
Andritz will also deliver stock preparation and automation equipment, as well as process-, fan- and multistage-pumps and auxiliaries.
Pham Van Dung, Vice President of the Board of Xuan Mai Paper, says: “ANDRITZ’s innovative tissue solutions offer both economic and ecological benefits. Professional service offers perfectly complement the technology. Since 2012, we have established a long-term cooperation that is built on mutual respect and trust. Our joint projects are in the areas of old corrugated containerboard lines, deinked pulp lines, and tissue production lines.”
In 2020, ANDRITZ already started up a complete tissue production line at Xuan Mai Paper. This follow-up order once again confirms ANDRITZ’s strong position as a long-term partner to the global tissue industry and as the number one supplier to the Asian tissue industry.
