The long term relationship between Valmet and Hayat Kimya was recently further strengthened when the Turkish tissue producer ordered its fifth Advantage DCT 200 tissue line from Valmet. The line will add 70.000 tons of high quality tissue to Hayat Kimya's current production of facial, toilet and towel tissue. The start-up of the new tissue line is planned for 2016.
The order is included in Valmet's second quarter, 2014 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
The order is part of Hayat Kimya's expansion plan in the Middle East. The first two of the Valmet delivered Advantage DCT 200 tissue lines were started up in 2010 and 2013 and two will start up in 2014 and 2015.
"We have developed an efficient cooperation with Valmet, which is built on mutual trust and common understanding. Our people are familiar with Valmet's Advantage tissue technology which has resulted in very fast start-ups and high production efficiency," says Lütfi Aydin, Director, Paper Group, Hayat Kimya.
"Our excellent and long term relationship with Hayat Kimya has resulted in another joint project and we are looking forward to continued good cooperation. The development of our tissue making technologies in cooperation with our customers has made the Advantage DCT technology the benchmark for the industry with close to 70 lines sold. We are dedicated to our customers' success and the tissue industry," says Jan Erikson, VP Sales, Tissue Mills Business Unit, Valmet.
The new tissue machine will have a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,200 m/min. The raw material for the new line will be virgin fiber and the production line is optimized to save energy and to enhance the quality of the final product.
