PT Graha Cemerlang Paper Utama (GCPU), a subsidiary of Kompas Gramedia Group, Indonesia, has brought its second brand-new Intelli-Tissue 2100 machine on stream at its Cikampek mill in Indonesia. The new tissue machine, supplied by PMPPoland S.A., reportedly started up smoothly and easily (plug & play technology). The new machine was named "Natalia."

The new 3,650 mm crescent former Intelli-Tissue 2100 machine has a maximum capacity of 140 tpd and a maximum operating speed of 2,000 m/min. It is basically the same machine GCPU ordered from PMPPoland in 2005; however, the Intelli-Tissue 2100 machine has a higher maximum operating speed and approximately 5% more capacity. The new machine is able to produce tissue in a basis weight range of 12 - 42 gsm for conversion into facial tissue, toilet rolls, and towels from 100% virgin pulp, both hardwood and softwood.

The scope of supply included stock approach, the entire tissue machine (Intelli-Jet V headbox, Intelli-Former Crescent Former, Intelli-Press, Intelli-Reel, and a 15-ft yankee dryer with a high efficiency gas hood), and auxiliary systems such as DCS for the entire technological line, lubrication system, steam and condensate and vacuum systems, and dust and mist removal systems.
