Argentina’s Celupaper has boosted its capacity with the start up of its Toscotec-supplied PM3.

The new line is installed at Papelera Nicaragua mill, Argentina, and its start-up follows the rebuilding of PM2, which Toscotec carried out in February 2015.

It will increase the mill’s daily tissue production to 50 tonnes of different grades of high-quality tissue.

Celulpaper owner Mario Speranza said: “A new era for Celupaper has just begun. “We want to play an important role in the South American market and our vision is to meet demand with high quality products following the market growth and retaining the customers.

“Now we are waiting for the next Toscotec PM4 that will be started up by the end of 2017.”

PM3’s delivery included the approach flow system featuring ultimate Toscotec technology TT SAF®, a MODULO tissue machine with single-layer headbox, single press configuration and TT SYD-2500MM featuring TT Milltech-MYH (monosystem gas heated hood).

The supply also comprised an electrification and controls package, and a steam and condensate system.
