Customer: EuroVast Group
Description: Italian tissue manufacturer EuroVast fired up a new Modulo-Plus tissue machine supplied by Toscotec at its Cartiera della Basilica paper mill in Villa Basilica, Lucca, Italy. PM5 is running efficiently at the speed of 1,600 m/min and since its start-up in February, it has exceeded the project’s production targets with excellent results in energy consumption.
Details: The new line completely replaced the mill’s existing PM5, a suction breast roll machine. The sheet width is 2,770 mm and the production capacity is over 30,000 tpy. It is equipped with a single press TT BlindDrilledPressRoll, a TT SYD and gas-fired TT Hoods. PM5 produces toilet tissue, kitchen towels and napkins from 100% pre-dried virgin pulp. EuroVast also purchased a complete service package including dismantling operations, erection, training, commissioning, and start-up assistance.
This is a repeat order for Toscotec, who in 2015 supplied another Modulo-Plus tissue line to EuroVast’s Cartiera della Basilica mill in Lugliano, near Lucca. This new line will increase the Group’s production capacity to 150,000 tons/year.
