Metsä Tissue has selected Valmet as supplier for the upgrades of tissue machine TM3 in Raubach, Germany and the tissue machine in Pauliström, Sweden. The value of the orders will not be disclosed, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Earlier this year Metsä Tissue started up its tissue machine TM1 in Raubach, Germany after Valmet's extensive rebuild of the wet section, where a new OptiFlo II TIS headbox and an Advantage ViscoNip press were installed. The target of this rebuild was to enhance the product qualities as well as energy efficiency and process performance in a sustainable way.
TM3 in Raubach will be equipped with the same headbox as TM1 while Pauliström will replace its existing shoe press and Yankee dryer with Valmet's Advantage ViscoNip press and cast iron Yankee cylinder.
Metsä Tissue is one of the leading tissue paper products suppliers to households and professionals in Europe and the world's leading supplier of baking and cooking papers.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
