(News from RISI) – China’s C&S Paper has started up a 60,000tpy tissue PM at a greenfield mill in Luoding city, Guangdong province.

The first sheet of paper rolled off the line earlier this month. The Andritz unit has a trim width of 5.56m and a design speed of 1,900m/min.

Its startup has boosted the firm’s total tissue capacity to around 390,000tpy.

An identical unit is expected to be fired up in three months at the same site.

The PMs were scheduled to come online by the end of 2013, but civil engineering at the site was delayed and pushed back the project.
