China’s Shandong Sun Paper has start up an Andritz-supplied PrimeLineTM W8 with Steel Yankee at its Yanzhou mill, Shandong province.

PM27 has a design speed of 2,000m/min and a width of 5.62m. The Yankee, manufactured entirely of steel, has a diameter of 18 feet.

The turnkey supply included the complete stock preparation plant and the automation system as well as a re-evaporation and heat recovery system that recycles energy – in the form of steam – to the production process. In combination with the Steel Yankee, this enables very energy-efficient and safe production.

Start-up of a second Andrita-supplied tissue machine for Shandong Sun Paper (PM28) is scheduled for next year.
