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 “equipped with the most advanced environmental technology presently available”.

It said: “OKI’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.

“Tissue production guarantees the highest standards in terms of tissue machine’s efficiency and energy consumption reduction, thanks to Prodergy’s technological advantages.”
