Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) has increased its production capacity in Indonesia after starting-up two Ahead-2.0L Prodergy tissue machines at its OKI mill.

Supplied by Toscotec, the lines are 22ft second-generation Steel Yankee dryers with widths of 5.6m and operating speeds of 2,000m/min.

The site is fully integrated with a pulp mill that is estimated to produce 2.8m tpy.

Toscotec said the line is ā€œequipped with the most advanced environmental technology presently availableā€.

It said: ā€œOKIā€™s production base is very much green-oriented. The mill will be powered by clean and self-sufficient energy generated from the pulp production process and wood bark gasification.

ā€œTissue production guarantees the highest standards in terms of tissue machineā€™s efficiency and energy consumption reduction, thanks to Prodergyā€™s technological advantages.ā€
