Valmet will supply two Advantage DCT tissue production lines and related automation systems to one of China's leading paper and pulp producers, Lee & Man Manufacturing Ltd. The start-up of the two new lines is planned to take place in late 2016, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Valmet's Advantage DCT 200HS tissue lines to be delivered are designed for production of high quality tissue products. The new tissue lines will fulfill the high requirements for effective technology and sustainability set by Lee & Man.
In 2014, the company ordered an Advantage DCT 200HS tissue line which is planned to start up at the Chongqing mill later this year.
"We are very pleased that Lee & Man have decided to extend the cooperation we started with the delivery of the first tissue machine to Chongqing mill.
As seen from earlier installations, it is possible to reach significant drying energy savings and highest paper quality by combining the Advantage ViscoNip press with a cast alloy Yankee cylinder and steam heated Advantage AirCap hood.
We also see this order as confirmation of the winning concept," says Svenerik Olsson, Director, Tissue Mills Business Unit, Valmet China.
Valmet's Advantage DCT concept is well established on the market and has proven to enable cost- and energy-efficient production of high quality tissue products.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
