Turkish tissue producer Hayat Kimya has invested in its eighth Valmet-supplied tissue machine to be installed at its new site outside Moscow, Russia.
The Advantage DCT 200 TS tissue machine – TM9 – will have a width of 5.6m and a design speed of 2,200m/min.
It is the first machine at Hayat Kimya’s new mill outside Moscow and will add 70,000 tonnes of tissue to the company’s current production of facial, toilet and towel tissues. It is the company’s third Valmet-supplied machine in Russia.
Lütfi Aydin, Director, Paper Group, Hayat Kimya, said: “We are regularly updating our machine fleet to make sure we always operate at optimum production level.”
The investment was in response to customer demand for high-quality tissue products.
Previously, the company has installed six Valmet Advantage DCT 200TS tissue production lines to its mills in Turkey, Russia and Egypt.
Valmet’s scope of delivery will comprise a complete tissue production line featuring stock preparation systems and a Valmet Advantage DCT 200 TS tissue machine.
The machine will be equipped with an OptiFlo headbox and a cast alloy Yankee cylinder.
It will also feature the Advantage tissue technology including ViscoNip press, an AirCap Heli hood and air system prepared for co-generation, WetDust dust system, sheet transfer system and a SoftReel L reel.
