Start-up team: Vinda starts-up four Valmet-supplied hybrid machine

Vinda has increased its ultra-premium quality tissue production capacity by 150,000 tonnes after starting up four Valmet-supplied hybrid machines.

The company said the ultra-premium products will be manufactured at a “significant lower energy cost” than other mature structured tissue technologies.

All four tissue machines started up in a period of five months.

Liang Weixiong, Project Director, Vinda, said: “We are confident that the hybrid technology will contribute to our growth in the tissue market. “The paper quality is meeting our expectations and we are convinced the technology will enable further product development and market differentiation in the future.”

The machinery supplier said that the hybrid machines “will ensure sustainable production of high-quality tissue products”.
