In January, Hebei Xuesong Paper Co., Ltd has signed a contract with PMP Group for 2nd Intelli- Tissue® EcoEc machine. Only 6 months after TM#1 successful start-up, Hebei Xuesong Paper choose PMP Group again as the provider of TM continuing fruitful partnership.
TM#2 (twin line to TM#1) with the brand name of Intelli-Tissue® 1200 EcoEc tissue machine, is characterized by reel trim of 2850 mm, design speed of 1200 m/min and capacity 60 t/d (basis weight 12.5-20 gsm). After TM#2 installation, Hebei Xuesong Paper will have two machines (right and left hand) in the same building based on integrated tissue mill concept.
Hebei Xuesong Paper - a famous tissue-making enterprise in Hebei Province, China - was founded in 1987and produces high-quality tissue products under “Xuesong” brand. PMP Group is a global provider of paper, board and tissue technology and has been serving pulp & paper industry for over 160 years. Efficient cooperation between two companies started from TM#1 project in 2013. First Intelli-Tissue® 1200 EcoEc was brought on stream in April 2014 and thanks to excellent cooperation between Hebei Xuesong Paper and the PMP teams, just 5 days after start-up, the maximum production capacity and tissue quality guarantees were achieved. Recently steam consumption reached an ultra-low level of 1.6- 1.8 t/t, which help to significantly minimize production costs.
TM#2 is actually a twin-sister machine of TM#1 and will also be executed based on philosophy of Optimum Cost Solution including tissue machine full design in Europe (PMPoland), manufacturing of the key components such as a Intelli-JetV® hydraulic headbox and a Intelli-YD™ steel Yankee in Europe (PMPoland), and the remaining manufacturing, tissue machine pre-assembly and tests completed at the Center of Excellence of PMP Group: PMP IB (Changzhou) Machinery & Technology, Changzhou (China). This combination ensures to lower the cost investment for the customer, while maintaining excellent quality of the equipment supplied. PMP will provide a stock approach system, Intelli-Tissue® 1200 EcoEc machine, mechanical drives, electrical drives, a lubrication system, a steam & condensate system and PLC. The PMP team will be responsible for an erection supervision and technological start-up.
The same model of right and left hand machines layout in one building is the most compact solution and the two machines can share a common spare parts base. As a result, both space and costs are saved as well as number of personnel required to run the installations. Finally, the valuable experience of PMP gained from TM#1 project will make TM#2 even more adapted to the customer’s requirements.
Year by year, PMP Group increases its presence in China through implementation of projects for both tissue & paper customers. Last decade in this market, has brought 11 CF tissue machines and 17 capital rebuilds including core technological units such as Intelli-Jet V® headboxes, Intelli-Nip® shoe presses, Intelli-Sizer™ size presses, etc. Combination of advanced technology and rich experience from PMP Group headquarters and convenient local service from PMP IB results in smart integration of assets & competences. This way PMP Intelli-Tissue® 1200 EcoEc tissue machine brings excellent support for its users daily.
