Toscotec fired up another two AHEAD-2.0L PRODERGY tissue machines at Asia Pulp & Paper’s (APP) OKI mill, in South Sumatra, Indonesia.

Following the startup of two AHEAD-2.0L PRODERGY at Perawang mill earlier this year, these two OKI machines started production less than three months after the startup of the first of a series of Toscotec’s PRODERGY machine ordered by APP for its Perawang and OKI mills in Indonesia. In the next few months, other 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-m width, 2,000-m/min operating speed, a second-generation steel Yankee dryer of 22-ft diameter 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 tpy estimated output.

Equipped with advanced environmental technology, the 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, commented, "The erection, commissioning and start-up 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"
