(News from RISI) Ningxia Jiamei Paper will install two new 20,000tpy tissue machines at its mill in Wuzhong city, in northwest China’s Ningxia autonomous region.
The producer has placed orders for the production lines from Guangdong Baotuo Science and Technology, a newly formed company created by Chinese supplier Baotuo Paper Machinery Engineering.
Guangdong Baotuo has recently acquired Liaoyang Allideas Paperteck, a paper machinery supplier based in Liaoyang city, China’s northern province of Liaoning.
The TMs, each having a trim width of 3.55m and a design speed of 1,300m/min, are scheduled to come on stream by the end of this year.
According to a contact from Ningxia Jiamei, currently the Wuzhong facility can convert 35,000tpy of tissue into finished products.
It sources some of the jumbo rolls from a plant in the nearby city of Qingtongxia where an affiliate company produces tissue furnished with wood and bamboo pulp on four small TMs with a combined capacity of around 15,000tpy.
