Valmet to supply an Advantage NTT tissue production line to Sofidel S.p.A in Spain

<< Back to Breaking News

Valmet will supply a complete tissue production line to Sofidel’s Ibertissue mill in Buñuel, Navarra, in Spain. The delivery includes an Advantage NTT 200 tissue production line, stock preparation equipment and automation system. Start-up of the new line is scheduled for third quarter 2018.

The order was included in Valmet’s first quarter 2017 orders received. The value of the order is not disclosed.

The up-coming new line in Spain will be Sofidel’s fourth Valmet Advantage NTT tissue line in Sofidel’s machine fleet. Previously the company has bought one NTT machine to their Delitissue mill in Poland and two NTT machines to their new site, Circleville in Ohio, USA. All in all, this is the 15th tissue machine supplied by Valmet to Sofidel.

"We are of course excited that Sofidel once again decided to go for the Advantage NTT technology to support their path toward future tissue making. It is a perfect match for Sofidel’s ambition to produce high quality tissue products with low energy consumption supporting their goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," says Jan Erikson, Vice President, Sales, Tissue Mills business unit, Valmet.
