Following the startup of two AHEAD-2.0L PRODERGY tissue machines at Perawang mill earlier this year, these two OKI machines started production in less than three months after the startup of the first of a series of Toscotec’s PRODERGY machine ordered by Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) for its Perawang and OKI mills in Indonesia. In the next few months, another four machines will start up at the same site. 

The AHEAD-2.0L PRODERGY is Toscotec’s top of the line tissue machine, featuring 5.6 meter width, 2,000 m/min operating speed, a second-generation steel yankee dryer of 22 ft. dia. and steam-heated hoods. Toscotec’s TT SYD-22FT is the biggest steel yankee dryer ever manufactured in the world for tissue application. Toscotec’s energy saving innovations consolidate OKI mill’s optimized green process: the paper mill is fully integrated with a massive pulp mill of 2.8 million metric tpy estimated output. 

Equipped with the most advanced environmental technology currently available, OKI production base is very much green-oriented. The mill will be powered by clean and self-sufficient energy generated from the pulp production process and wood bark gasification. Tissue production guarantees the highest standards in terms of tissue machine’s efficiency and energy consumption reduction, thanks to PRODERGY’s technological advantages. 

Toscotec’s Chief Customer Service Officer Valter Di Nardo said that "the erection, commissioning, and startup of OKI tissue machines was completed in record time. Toscotec’s technical team on site installed the first foundation plate on January 4. After just over 100 days, we fired up the first AHEAD-2.0L PRODERGY, and after one week, the second startup followed suit. The mill expressed satisfaction for tissue quality starting from day one.
