Mediterranean Paper Mills (MPM), Syria, has ordered a new tissue line from Toscotec (Italy) to be installed as a replacement for TM 1 at the company's Jableh, Lattakia, mill. The new crescent former features a single-layer headbox, single press configuration, and Steel Yankee Dryer TT SYD 3200 MM. The scope of supply also includes the approach flow system, upgrading of the existing stock preparation plant, steam heated hood, steam and condensate system, and the electrification and control system. Engineering and services (erection supervision, commissioning, and startup assistance/training) complete the Toscotec package.

MPM is a major tissue producer in the Syrian market. The company was established in 1989 by Ali Jalloul and is owned by the Jalloul family. Currently it is producing and converting around 3,500 metric tpy of toilet, facial, and napkins for the local market. The new-generation line replacing the existing TM 1 will allow MPM to better serve the growing Syrian market in terms of both quantity and quality. The new machine will have an operating speed up to 900 m/min, with a trim width of 2,250 mm, for a daily production of 40 metric tons. It will produce tissue from both virgin pulp and recycled fiber. The machine will be installed during the fourth quarter of this year.
