Vinda Personal Care (China) has started up two Toscotec-supplied AHEAD-2.0M tissue machines in Xiaogan city, Hubei.

Both lines feature a second-generation large diameter TT SYD, the supplier’s shoe press technology TT NextPress, and the energy-efficient TT DOES solution (Drying Optimisation for Energy Savings).

The two AHEAD-2.0M machines will increase the group’s annual production by over 60,000tpy.

Anna Wang, chief operating officer, Vinda International Holdings, said: “Vinda Personal Care (China) is a very strategic production base for the group, we are investing on its operations and therefore we expect efficient performances and very low consumptions on these new Toscotec’s lines.”

The project inaugurates the company’s second production base in Xiaogan, located in the vicinity of its existing mill.

Toscotec is installing other two tissue lines at Vinda Personal Care (China), scheduled for start-up over the next few months.
