GRAZ, Austria, Oct. 1, 2012 (Press Release) -International technology Group ANDRITZ has successfully completed a total of four tissue machine start-ups planned for this year at Hengan Group, China. The Hengan Group is thus running nine ANDRITZ tissue machines - two of which are fitted with the largest steel yankees in operation worldwide.

From January to September of this year, two PrimeLine W8 tissue machines were started up at the Chongqing mill and two PrimeLine TM W6 tissue machines at the Jinjiang mill, all ahead of the time schedule. All four orders included the supply of the complete stock preparation and machine control systems. The steel yankees of PM15 and PM16 are the largest for tissue operating anywhere in the world. With a diameter of 4.9 m and a shell length of 6.2 m, they provide for safe and energy-efficient machine operation.

The ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER business area, which manufactures its tissue machine components in Europe and China and is confirming its position as one of the leading suppliers of tissue machines and local services in China with the start-ups for the Hengan Group, will be presenting its latest tissue technology at Tissue World Asia in Shanghai (November 14-16) and at Tissue World Barcelona (March 19-21, 2013).
