Toscotec, Italy, will supply a new MODULO-PLUS tissue line to Celupaper S.A., part of Grupo Vual, a South American regional player for the production of high quality tissue products. The new PM 4 line will be installed at Papelera Nicaragua, and is scheduled to start up by the end of 2017.

This is the third Celupaper order for Toscotec in two years. Previously Toscotec reconfigured the company’s PM 2 fourdrinier with the installation of a TT DOES package (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving), which started up in 2015, and supplied a new PM 3 MODULO line that will start up in May of this year.

Toscotec’s MODULO-PLUS line at Celupaper will be designed to produce high quality tissue products, with a gross production of 65 metric tpd. The tissue machine is equipped with a single layer headbox, one press configuration, a TT SYD-3200MM yankee dryer, a TT Milltech-MYH Monosystem Hood fed by natural gas, and a steam and condensate removal system. The approach flow system, electrification and control, erection supervision, startup assistance, and training programs are also included in the scope of supply.

"With this series of investments, we will play an important role in the South American market. The group already has three manufacturing plants (Jose Juan Yapur, Celupaper, and Papelera Nicaragua), one pulp mill (Celulosa Alto Vale), and many distribution centers located in Santa Fe, Córdoba, Bahia Blanca, and Buenos Aires, employing more than 700 people," said Mario Speranza, CEO of Celupaper S.A.

"It's an honor for us to continue the good cooperation with Celupaper. Our goal is to attain significant results in terms of productivity and of drying energy saving. The TT DOES continues to be a key technology of our lines to bring concrete benefits to our customer and to take their performance forward," said Alessandro Mennucci, CEO of Toscotec S.p.A.
