Voith won a contract from Turkish paper manufacturer Kipaş Kağıt to build the PM 1 at the company's mill at Söke in Western Turkey.

The company will use the XcelLine facility to produce around 700,000 metric tons per year of high-quality board and packaging papers with basis weights of 90 to 400 grams per square meter. Kipaş Kağıt is planning to run at a production speed of 1,200 meters per minute. The wire section has a flexible design allowing the production of two-ply and three-ply paper.

Voith will also supply the complete initial clothing for the PM 1 and three further clothing sets.
