Paper Prime S.A., a company belonging to the Trevipapel Group, Lousã, Portugal, that produces the Joker Gold brand of hygiene professional away-from-home (AfH) tissue products, has signed a contract with Toscotec, Italy, for the supply of a tissue line in Vila Velha de Rodão. The new tissue line is scheduled to come on stream in the last quarter of 2016. 

The Trevipapel S.A. investment is estimated to be EUR 35 million, and its goal is to supply paper reels for the Trevipapel converter units and for export. The new paper mill will be also in line with a pulp mill, which will add increased value to the investment, providing eucalyptus based slush pulp. 

Toscotec’s turn-key project for TM 1 includes the stock preparation plant for dry virgin pulp, AHEAD-2.0S tissue machine with a steel yankee dryer TT SYD-16FT, machine auxiliaries including a Milltech Gas fired Hood, steam and condensate and dust removal system, electrification starting from medium voltage cabinets, control system, additional plants, and complete engineering and erection activity. A three unwind stand rewinder TT WIND-H completes the supply. 

Machine operating speed will be 2,000 m/min with a net trim width of 2,750 mm and an average annual production of 38,000 tpy.

Established in 1991, the Trevipapel Group has grown from a small private company into one of the leading providers of hygiene professional products (AfH) in Portugal due to its Joker Gold brand. With two manufacturing plants strategically located in the center of the country, where it converts 20,000 metric tpy, the Group serves Portugal, Spain, central Europe, and has started export to Africa and South America.
