International technology group Andritz has successfully started up the new steel Yankee and air and energy systems at Kartogroup España S.L., Burriana mill, Spain.
The turnkey order included a steel Yankee with steam and condensate system for the PM2 tissue machine as well as two dust removal systems for PM2 and PM4. Andritz Novimpianti provided the complete project management, commissioning, and start-up for all these key components.
“The whole project ran smoothly and on schedule,” says Pascual Gómez, COO of Kartogroup. “The new Andritz technology contributes to a substantial reduction in energy consumption compared to traditional concepts. We are especially impressed by the new steel Yankee. Only a few days after the successful start-up it is already operating at full performance.”
Kartogroup España S.L., a member of the Cominter Group, has more than 40 years’ experience in the tissue business. At its mills in Burriana and Hernani (both Spain), the company produces high-quality tissue grades for household and industrial applications.
