Vietnam’s Xuan Mai Paper has invested in a PrimeLineECO tissue machine to be installed at its Ho Chi Minh City-based plant.

Supplied by Andritz, the machine has a design speed of 1,300m per minute and a paper width of 2.85m and start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020.

Scope of supply includes a separate DIP line, a stock preparation system for LBKP/NBKP market pulp, an approach flow system, a fibre recovery and broke handling system as well as basic and detail engineering.

The entire line is equipped with an Andritz PrimeControl automation package and an advanced Multi Motor Drive system.

It will produce high-quality tissue grades made of either 100% virgin or 100% deinked pulp (DIP).

The supplier said the PrimeLineECO tissue machine is a new machine extending Andritz’s product portfolio, focusing on emerging markets and their need for energy savings.
