Lithuania’s Grigiskes has successfully started up its new Toscotec (Italy)-supplied 110 metric tpd tissue PM 6 at the company’s Vilnius mill. The site already houses the 17,000 metric tpy tissue PM 5 modernized with the installation of a Toscotec steel yankee dryer TT SYD-4200MM in early 2011.

The new Toscotec line includes an AHEAD-1.5S crescent former tissue machine with a single-layer headbox, single press configuration, and a steel yankee dryer (TT SYD-15FT), machine auxiliaries (gas heated hood with three-stage heat recovery system, machine dust and mist removal system, and hall ventilation system were supplied by Milltech), stock preparation plant for virgin pulp, and electrification and control system.
A two-unwind-stands tissue slitter rewinder TT WIND-M and an automatic roll handling system completed the supply. The machine design speed is 1,900 m/min with a net web width of 2,750 mm. The project has been managed by Toscotec on an EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) basis.

"As announced earlier, erection of the new production line was completed at the beginning of March. All components of the new machine were tested during the first half of the month and this week we produced the first batch of paper. We are very happy to announce that production startup was smooth, and quality of the first paper batch supports our optimistic belief in the investment. Having started production with a new paper machine, we expect fast growth of our turnover and profit," said Gintautas Pangonis, president of Grigiskes AB.
