Fabrica de Papel San Francisco, Baja California, Mexico, has ordered from Metso, Finland, a new tissue paper machine to be installed at its tissue mill in Mexicali, Baja California. Total cost of the project, scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2013, is estimated to be $85 million. Startup is planned for near the end of the year.

The new machine will have a production capacity of 30,000 metric tpy of tissue paper, boosting the mill's total tissue production capacity to 880,000 metric tpy. After the project is completed, the plant will have a total annual production capacity of 880,000 tons.

The machine will be equipped with a headbox, a Yankee dryer and hood, sheet control, tail-threading equipment, a dust management system, and a reel. The Fabrica de Papel San Francisco mill, which came on-stream in 1980, currently has four tissue machines with a total production capacity of 850,000 metric tpy. The new line will use 100% recycled fiber as raw material.
