Toscotec’s MODULO-PLUS will be delivered with a design  for the production of high quality tissue products featuring a gross daily production of 65 tonn.

Approach flow system, electrification & control, as well as erection supervision, start up assistance and training programs are also included in the scope of supply.

“With this series of investments we believe to play an important role in South American market. Today the group has already three manufacturing plants (Jose Juan Yapur, Celupaper and Papelera Nicaragua), one pulp manufacturing plant (Celulosa Alto Vale) and many distribution centers located in Santa Fe, Córdoba, Bahia Blanca and Buenos Aires employing more than 700 people.” - confirms Mario Speranza, CEO of Celupaper S.A.

“It's an honor for us to continue the good cooperation with Celupaper. Our aim is to reach significant results in terms of productivity and of drying energy saving. The TT DOES continues to be a key technology of our lines to bring concrete benefits to our customer and take their performance forward."- says with great satisfaction Alessandro Mennucci, CEO of Toscotec S.p.A.
