Valmet will supply a complete tissue production line to Sofidel's Ibertissue mill in Spain.
The delivery includes an Advantage NTT 200 tissue production line, stock preparation equipment and automation system. Startup of the new line is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018. The tissue machine will have a design speed of 1,800 m/min in textured mode and 2,000 m/min in plain mode. It is designed to save energy and fiber as well as add possibilities for product differentiation and increased capacity.
Sofidel previously purchased an NTT machine for its Delitissue mill in Poland and two NTT machines for its site in Circleville, Ohio.
