South Africa’s Twinsaver Group has started up an AHEAD-2.0S tissue machine at its Kliprivier operations in Gauteng.
PM5 is a turnkey project supplied by Toscotec and is equipped with a second-generation TT SYD-15FT Steel Yankee dryer with a diameter of 15ft.
The line will produce premium quality super-soft toilet tissue to supply the local and export markets, with a total production of over 30,000tpy.
It is part of a R580m investment announced by the branded tissue manufacturer last year.
The scope of supply included the stock preparation system, the AHEAD-2.0S tissue line, the electrification and control systems, complete plant engineering, erection, and supervision for erection, commissioning, training and start-up.
Twinsaver Group is a leading South African manufacturer and distributor of branded tissue products, including toilet tissue, facial tissues, roller towels, house and leisure and AfH products.
