The HengAn Group, China, and Andritz, Graz, Austria, have successfully completed a total of four tissue machine startups planned for this year. The Hengan Group is thus running nine Andritz tissue machines, two of which are fitted with the largest steel yankees in operation worldwide.

From January to September of this year, two PrimeLine W8 tissue machines were started up at the Chongqing mill and two PrimeLine TM W6 tissue machines at the Jinjiang mill, all ahead of the time schedule. All four orders included the supply of the complete stock preparation and machine control systems. The steel yankees of PM 15 and PM 16 are the largest for tissue operating anywhere in the world, with a diameter of 4.9 meters and a shell length of 6.2 meters.
