Toscotec will supply a new MODULO-PLUS tissue line to Celupaper of the leading South American group Grupo Vual, based in Argentina. The MODULO-PLUS machine PM 5 - is scheduled for delivery in autumn 2019 and it will be installed at Papelera Nicaragua mill.

The MODULO-PLUS will produce 65 tons/day and is equipped with TT SuctionPressRoll, TT SYD-3200MM and TT Milltech-MGYH Multigen hoods. The scope of supply also includes the  approach flow system, the steam and condensate system and the machine and distribution control system.

PM 5 is the fourth repeat order awarded by Celupaper to Toscotec in four years. The Italian manufacturer had previously supplied a major rebuild on PM 2 in 2015, then a MODULO machine PM 3 - in 2016 and finally PM 4, a MODULO-PLUS line, which started up in mid-July 2018.

Toscotec’s area sales manager Gabriele Romanini said, "The fact that Celupaper chose to work again with us on their PM5 project is an exciting challenge to exceed their expectations on productivity and energy reduction. Our TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package, in combination with our Multigen Hood in cogeneration mode, is the core of this effort. We are currently working on the engineering, where the design of our system will integrate into the mill’s cogeneration plant with a gas turbine. Back in 2011, our Energy and Environment department won the PPI Efficiency Improvements of the Year Award with the Spanish producer L.C. Paper 1881 SA, for the effective integration of the tissue machine’s hood system with the cogeneration facility. Drawing on that experience, we expect to achieve substantial energy recovery and very interesting cuts on the machine operating costs".

Mario Speranza, CEO of Celupaper S.A. commented on the order, "We invest in leading-edge technology to step up our growth in the high-quality tissue market in South America. Toscotec’s tailor-made design has once again provided us with the flexibility and competitive advantage weneed to succeed. We knew that Toscotec had significant experience with cogeneration plants and therefore we have great expectations for the performance and consumption of PM 5".
