The investment targets to improve the mill’s energy and production efficiency and to increase its production capacity


Metsä Tissue announced Valmet will supply an extensive rebuild of their tissue machine PM 10, including control system, at the Mänttä mill in Finland, reported the company on its website.

The investment is part of their Future Mill program with the target to improve the mill’s energy and production efficiency and increase its production capacity.

The order is Valmet’s third Advantage ViscoNip press installation for Metsä Tissue. The technology has previously been installed at Raubach TM 1, in Germany, and at Pauliström, in Sweden. The good results and collaboration in those projects convinced Metsä Tissue to choose Valmet also for the extensive upgrade of the Mänttä PM 10 machine.

“The paper machine’s renewal will provide consumers with increasingly soft and strong paper while significantly reducing the amount of energy used to produce it. This will reduce carbon dioxide emissions in accordance with our sustainability goals,” said Kari Karttunen, vice-president of Production of the Mänttä mill, Metsä Tissue.

The scope of delivery will comprise a new press section including an Advantage ViscoNip press. The drying section will be equipped with a steel Advantage Yankee Dryer and an Advantage AirCap hood. The scope also includes Valmet DNA system featuring the new Valmet DNA Drive and Safety controls, mill engineering, installation supervision and auxiliary systems.
