Syktyvkar Tissue Group, Russia, has placed a repeat order with Metso, Finland, for a new tissue machine to be installed at the company’s new site in Semibratovo, located some 220 km from Moscow. Startup of the machine is scheduled for mid-2014. The value of the order was not disclosed.

The order follows the previous Metso installation of an Advantage DCT 100 tissue machine in 2007 and a major tissue machine rebuild during 2012.

"Metso’s delivery will include a complete high-speed tissue production line featuring an Advantage DCT 100 HS tissue machine equipped with an OptiFlo headbox, a Metso cast iron yankee cylinder, and an Advantage AirCap yankee hood. Metso will also supply stock preparation equipment, including an OptiFiner conical refiner, OptiScreen cleaning and screening technology, and converting broke equipment.

In addition, Metso’s scope of supply will include an electrification package, pumps, agitators, instruments, a vacuum system, and white water handling. The delivery will include basic and detail engineering for the new tissue machine and services for installation and startup of the machine. Furthermore, Metso will supply Metso DNA automation for process, machine, and drive controls, and Metso IQ quality controls.

The new line will have a width of 2.7 meters and an operating speed of 2,000 meters per minute, and it will add another 30,000 metric tpy of bathroom tissue, napkin, and towel grades to the company's existing production.

Today Syktyvkar Tissue Group is one of the best known companies on the Russian market for tissue products with a market share of around 10%. The company employs 385 people and produces some 45,000 metric tpy of tissue. The company’s headquarters and existing production facilities are located in Syktyvkar, capital of the republic of Komi in the northwestern part of Russia.
