Celupaper starts up the new MODULO tissue machine supplied by Toscotec at Papelera Nicaragua, Argentina.

Celupaper S.A. started up the new PM3, the first of the two tissue machine that the South American producer has commissioned to the Italian leading supplier in the last 2 years. This start-up follows the rebuilding of PM2 that Toscotec also carried out in February 2015.

The new line is installed at Papelera Nicaragua mill, Argentina.

Based on an intensive energy-saving concept, PM3’s delivery included the approach flow system featuring ultimate Toscotec technology TT SAF®, a MODULO tissue machine with single-layer headbox, single press configuration and TT SYD-2500MM featuring TT Milltech-MYH (monosystem gas heated hood). The supply also comprised an electrification and controls package and steam & condensate system.

The excellent cooperation between the two teams has allowed to get immediately the target of productivity, optimizing the production cycle, both in terms of flexibility and energy costs. This project will increase the mill daily tissue production of 50 tons of different grades of high-quality tissue.

“A new era for Celupaper has just began. We believe to play an important role in South American market according to our vision: to meet the demand with high quality products following the market growth  and retaining the customers. Now we are waiting for the next Toscotec PM4 that will be started up within the end of 2017.” says Mario Speranza , owner of Celulpaper S.A..
