On December 25, 2021, international technology group ANDRITZ successfully started up the second of two PrimeLineTM W 2000 tissue machines delivered to Guangxi Sun Paper, China, for its mill in Beihai City, Guangxi Province.

The tissue machine (TM6) has a design speed of 2,000 m/min, a working width of 5.65 m and a capacity of 60,000 t/a, and it is equipped with energy-saving components (steel Yankee with head insulation, heat recovery system, Yankee Ecosteam system for re-evaporation). Forming fabrics and press felts by ANDRITZ Fabrics and Rolls were installed for optimum end-product quality.

Like the TM5 order, the scope of supply also included FibreSolve FSV pulpers, the paper machine approach flow systems, broke handling and fiber recovery, and automation systems.

Guangxi Sun Paper is part of the Sun Paper Group. It was founded in 2019 with the aim of establishing an integrated pulp and paper mill in Beihai City. The new greenfield mill will presumably have a total pulp and paper capacity of 3.5 million t/year and will be built in two phases over approximately four years. With this start-up, Sun Paper now has four ANDRITZ PrimeLine tissue machines successfully in operation.
