Argentina’s Celupaper has started-up its new MODULO-PLUS tissue machine at its Papelera Nicaragua mill.

Supplied by Tosoctec, the line produces 65tpd and features a single layer TT Headbox, TT SuctionPressRoll, TT SYD-3200MM and TT Milltech-MYH monosystem gas-fired hoods.

The scope of supply also includes the approach flow system, the electrification and control system, training, erection supervision, commissioning and start-up assistance.

Mario Speranza, chief executive of Celupaper, said that due to continued investments and production increases, the company has “grown significantly” in the South American market.

He said: “Since 2015, we boosted production by over 100tpd. Tissue quality, machine efficiency and energy reduction are our key standards of investments in new equipment.

PM4 is part of a series of repeated orders awarded to Toscotec by the South American tissue producer.

In 2015, Toscotec carried out the rebuilding of PM2, an existing Fourdrinier machine, and supplied a new steel Yankee dryer TT SYD-2500MM and the complete steam and condensate system.

In 2016, it supplied PM3, a complete MODULO tissue line.
