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.
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.
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. The new tissue machines will have a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000 m/min. Each machine will produce 60.000 tons of toilet and facial tissue per year, using virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.
