The Sofidel Group, global leading manufacturer of paper for hygienic and domestic use and well-known in Italy in particular for the brand Regina, today announced the purchase of a latest-generation machine for the production of tissue, which will be installed in the Delitissue plant in Ciechanów, Poland.
The Advantage New Tissue Technology (NTT) 200 machine produced by Valmet, leading global developer and supplier of technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries, manufactures both conventional and textured tissue and will allow Sofidel to further improve the quality of its product range and increase further the plant’s energy efficiency.
The new machine, that has a 5.5 metres size and a speed of 2,000 metres per minute, will come into operation in Q4 2017 and will have a production capacity of 70,000 tons a year. Valmet’s supply includes the machines for the mixtures preparation as well as the entire automation system.
NTT technology allows the production of tissue with minor energy and fiber consumptions in an extremely flexible way, and it is consistent with Sofidel’s sustainability strategy for environmental footprint reduction.
“This decision is in keeping with Sofidel’s focus on the most innovative and high-performance technology, and is also a significant way of increasing our sustainability standards and expanding our range of products, especially in terms of consumer demand in the premium segment”, declared Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of the Sofidel Group.
