Valmet receives the ninth tissue line order from Hayat Kimya

Valmet will supply the ninth tissue line delivery, including an extensive automation package, to Turkish tissue producer Hayat Kimya. The company has decided to invest in a new tissue machine at their new mill in Russia, with a target to meet the increasing demand for their high-quality tissue products.

The new line will add 70,000 tons of tissue to their current production of facial, toilet and towel tissues. The start-up is planned for the end of 2022.

“We are proud to have had the opportunity to deliver nine Advantage DCT machines in a row to Hayat Kimya. That is definitely a proof that the technology is reliable, efficient, easy to use and meets expected production and product quality targets. During the years, we have developed both good technical performance and team collaboration, so we are excited to continue the journey to also make this new project a success,” says Björn Magnus, Sales Director at Valmet in a press release.

Testing the limits

Hayat Kimya has previously installed seven Valmet Advantage DCT 200TS tissue production lines to its mills in Turkey, Russia and Egypt, and is currently installing the tissue machine TM9 at its new site in Russia. Hayat Kimya is constantly utilizing the latest technology to reach the highest efficiency and lowest possible energy consumption.

“Our ambition is to continuously improve our performance with each installation, and the Advantage DCT technology is certainly supporting that target. Together with Valmet, we have established an efficient way of working and have been able to reach very smooth and fast start-ups. Ever since the start-ups, we have been running the machines at constant high speed and efficiency,” says Lütfi Aydin, Director, Paper Group, Hayat Kimya.
