Bashundhara Paper Mills has started-up its Andritz-supplied turnkey PrimeLineCOMPACT VI tissue production line at its site in Bangladesh.

It has a design speed of 2,100m/min and a paper width of 2.85m and produces tissue for high-quality facial wipes, toilet paper, and napkins.

The 16ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee is made entirely of steel, which the supplier said enables “high and efficient drying performance”.

For Andritz, it is its first high-speed tissue machine to be installed in Bangladesh.

The tissue production line is equipped with its PrimeControl automation system for a high-performance production process.

For the first time, the company has also supplied a multi-motor drive (MMD) system with active line modules (ALM), designed for feeding energy back into the grid as a renewable energy solution.

The scope of supply also included the complete stock preparation plant with approach flow system, fibre recovery and broke handling.
