Metso will supply two complete tissue production lines to Shanghai Orient Champion Paper Co., Ltd., Shanghai, China.

One of the lines will include Metso's Advantage DCT 100+ tissue machine, and the other will include an Advantage DCT 135+ machine, together providing a joint capacity of 70,000 tonnes per year. The first line is scheduled to start up in the second quarter of 2011 and the second in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Each of the tissue machines will be equipped with the company's headbox, Yankee cylinder, hood, dust management system and reel. The stock-preparation systems will comprise pulpers, conical refiners, deflakers and machine screens. Also, both machines will be delivered with a Metso automation package that includes machine-, process- and integrated-drive controls as well as a quality control system. The company's IQSteamPro steam box also is included for energy savings and moisture profile control.

Both production lines will be installed at Shanghai Orient Champion Paper’s paper-making facility in Jinshan, outside Shanghai. After the installation of the two lines, the total capacity at the mill will double from 70,000 to 140,000 tonnes a year, according to Metso.
