Valmet will supply a complete automated tissue production line to Sofidel's Delitissue mill in Ciechanóv, Poland. The delivery includes an Advantage NTT 200 tissue production line, stock preparation equipment and automation system.

The order was included in Valmet's 2015 orders received. The value of the order is not disclosed.

The new tissue machine will have a design speed of 1,800 m/min in textured mode and 2,000 m/min in plain mode. The production line is optimized to save energy and fiber as well as add possibilities for product differentiation and increased capacity of premium quality products.

Valmet's scope of supply comprises a complete tissue production line including an Advantage NTT tissue machine, with an OptiFlo headbox and a cast alloy Yankee cylinder. It will also be featured with the Advantage tissue technology including, an AirCap hood with Air system, WetDust system and a SoftReel B reel. Valmet will also deliver detailed mill engineering, stock preparation equipment as well as an automation package including DCS (distributed control) and QCS (quality control) systems.
