Metso will supply a complete tissue production line to Fujian HengLi Paper Co., Ltd. in Nanan City, Fujian Province, China. The line will be started up in the third quarter of 2011.

The market value of a tissue production line of this type is in the range of EUR 15-20 million depending on the scope of the delivery and the production output.

With a width of 5.6 m and an operating speed of 1,900 m/min, the new production line will produce 60,000 tons a year of high-quality facial, toilet and towel grades. The raw material for the new line will be virgin pulp.
