In the last two years, the close partnership between the Hong Kong based  giant tissue producer Vinda International Holdings Ltd's and the Italian leader tissue machinery Supplier Toscotec S.p.A., has delivered exceptional results: over 20 new TMs have been started up with a variety of models and drying configurations. This allowed the Vinda Group to double its production capacity reaching over 900,000 tpy tissue production.

Established in 1985, Vinda Group has grown from a small private company into a leading manufacturer and branded provider of quality household paper products in the PRC and Hong Kong. Vinda is today, with major shares from Swedish based group SCA, the third largest hygiene paper manufacturer in the PRC, with excellent performance in customer loyalty and satisfaction. With 9 manufacturing plants strategically located in different parts of the country, it serves the entire PRC, Hong Kong and Macau and exports to Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Africa.

2014-11-21 095304The first orders placed by the Chinese producer in year 2012 featured Toscotec’s Modulo Plus ES, with 12 ft TT SYD, a compact, modular and cost-effective machine concept with superior energy saving features. The most recent orders were for Toscotec’s advanced, high-performance tissue machines, the Ahead 2.0 ES, with 18 ft SYD.

The key to this continuous success is represented by the great advantages in energy savings granted by Toscotec’s state of the art technology and its “TT DOES” solution, the Drying Optimization for Energy Saving.

TT DOES relies here, like in most of the orders secured to the Italian Supplier in China, exclusively on steam, the cost-effective energy source in the region, and delivers the lowest possible energy consumption.

Through the wide application and fine tuning of this solution over the years, Toscotec has now achieved the lowest consumption figures of the tissue industry, matched with the highest machine performance and runnability.

The increase in drying capacity translates directly into an increase in production output in the mill with an important side effect to reduce carbon footprint emissions.

In China since 2003, in a few years Toscotec has established itself as a leading tissue machine supplier catering to top Chinese producers. This is also the result of the recent investment effort and major steps taken by the Lucca manufacturer in establishing a new organization in China, Toscotec Paper Machine (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.
Started up in 2012, the Shanghai-based affiliate operates as Toscotec’s Sales & Customer Care Center for the entire Asian market.

Besalu, Catalunya (Spain) - At the beginning of October 2014 the Spanish Company L.C. Paper 1881 has started up PM2 in Besalu, (Catalunya – Spain) after a major dry-end rebuild with Toscotec and its associate Milltech.

The rebuild project target was mainly to reduce PM2 energy costs and improve paper machine efficiency as well as increase the production at higher tissue grades thanks to the application of TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package.

lcpaper logoLC Paper was formed in 1881 on the back of the Industrial Revolution and is now well regarded for its production of niche tissue products contained with two tissue machines (PM2 and PM3) annually producing 65,000 tonnes of tissue for the AfH market. The main focus of the mill is toward energy saving aspects and for this reason since many years the Company has been focused on cogeneration applications.

Already in 1993, LC Paper introduced in the mill a cogeneration plant. It was the first plant with a diesel engine of 6.5 MW in Spain that was expanded in 1999 with a second 6 MW engine.

In 2009 LC Paper launched PM3 with a patented process that takes gas from the cogeneration plant to dry the paper by the means of an innovative hood provided already by Milltech. In 2011 the first diesel engine was sold and in 2012 LC paper installed a new gas engine. 6 MW of this energy have been used for feeding the new hood by Milltech on PM2 with a further decrease of energy consumption.

2014-11-21 094650The combined scope of supply Toscotec/Milltech featured a new double presses configuration with a rebuild of the felt run, a new TT SYD-15FT with doctoring system and a Duo-system Yankee hood, SMART eMT type from Milltech. The wet end hood is burner feeding type while the dry end hood could be fed either by cogeneration gases or by conventional burner.

So the exhaust gases coming from a gas engine are used to generate two stages of steam (high and low pressure) through steam generators in addition to the heat recovery to pre-heat the make-up and combustion air for the hood.

Maximum drying production with a machine trim width at reel of 3050 mm will be 130 tpd. With this new intervention the PM2 thermal consumption will be lowered to 1,350 kWh/t.

The rebuild project has been successful thanks to the close collaboration between the L.C. Paper staff and Toscotec and Milltech teams which were able once more to introduce innovative solutions to the tissue production process in accordance with LC Paper business philosophy.
