Valmet will supply an Advantage DCT100HS tissue production line, including a de-inking plant and an extensive automation package, to Alas Doradas in El Salvador. The order also includes a Valmet Performance Center agreement to support efficient production with Industrial Internet. The new tissue line will fulfill Alas Doradas’ demand for new capacity of high-quality tissue products in the region. The start-up is planned for the first half of 2021.

The order is included in Valmet's orders received of the fourth quarter 2019. The value of the order is not disclosed.

“Our cooperation with Valmet started with the rebuild of our existing machine where the press section was upgraded with an Advantage ViscoNip press combined with Advantage ReDry technology. With the results achieved, we are convinced that Valmet’s technology is what we need to differentiate from competition and become the frontrunner in the Central American tissue market. Even more important is the collaboration with a reliable partner as Valmet. We see this as the first step in a long-term partnership. Valmet has met and exceeded all expectations as a reliable partner during our cooperation,” said Paul Ekman, CEO, Alas Doradas.

“To be chosen as preferred partner to Alas Doradas is an important statement for us. We appreciate our relationship greatly. The new Advantage DCT tissue machine will be equipped with all the latest technologies which shows that our role as technology leader and advisor fulfills customer’s needs in the important South American market”, said Kent Nika, Sales Director for South America, Tissue, Valmet.

Both companies are looking forward to the future with a shared aim – to realize Alas Doradas’ expansion plan and provide high-quality tissue products to their customers.
