Intertrade Hellas S.A. chooses A.Celli Paper for its new tissue production line

The Greek converter continues its expansion in the tissue paper industry and signs a contract with A.Celli Paper for the supply of a new turnkey production line. 

A.Celli Paper will supply a complete turnkey solution for the production of tissue paper, from stock preparation up to the handling of the finished reels, to the European brand Intertrade Hellas S.A., the leading converter of base paper and sanitary tissue products in the Greek Market.

The turnkey line starts with specifically designed solutions for the preparation of stock from virgin fiber, which will take into account the specific customer needs in terms of layout, quality and throughput.

The Tissue machine included in the supply, the A.Celli iDEAL® Master 2000L, represents the most advanced and efficient solution through which A.Celli Paper underlines its role as a cutting-edge partner in the industry. This tissue machine features a web width of 5600 mm, a design speed of 2100 m/min and a working speed of 2000 m/min, all this to reach a production capacity of 244 tpd (20 gsm) or 221 tpd (16 gsm). The first-rate performance provided by the A.Celli line will ensure the desired increase in the production level and the improvement of the quality of the finished product.

Another key factor that led Intertade Hellas S.A. to choose A.Celli Paper was our capability to provide the Greek converter with a double format 16” Forged Yankee Dryer with a total width of 6085 mm. Thanks to this technology, it is possible to substantially reduce the thermal energy requirement while maintaining the high drying capacity and ease of maintenance typical of this solution.

A.Celli will also provide Intertrade Hellas with:

  • A latest generation three-ply E-WIND® T200 slitter rewinder with a width of 5600 mm and a speed of 1800 m/min
  • A top-notch R-WAY® reel handling system, consisting of conveyor belt, wrapper, up-ender and labeling system.
  • Our renowned DCS control system and the innovative, Industry 4.0-ready automation platform capable of integrating the various systems implemented in the production plant.
Finally, the supply will include a wide range of services provided by the engineers of A.Celli Paper’s technical office: a group of experts with proven years of experience in the industry.

The machines have been pre-assembled at our headquarters located in Lucca, Italy, while the start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2022. A.Celli Paper is proud to offer our customer a leap forward in quality, aiming for important and ambitious production milestones.

“We are very excited working together with A. Celli for this turn key project. The new Tissue Machine, thanks to its efficiency and reliability, will be able to supply the Greek market with the highest quality of tissue. At last Greece will produce its own paper and, after many years, the country will become self-sufficient. It is indeed a historic moment, and we are very proud of it” says Ioannis Delidimos, CEO of Intertrade Hellas S.A. “This investment boasts an important technological and strategic value. It’s a top-notch project carried out with a perfect partner: Intertrade Hellas. This is a state of the art, double width Tissue production line designed from the very beginning with sustainability, carbon footprint reduction and lower energy consumption in mind. A.Celli is fully committed to supply high value solutions to its customers” says Alessandro Celli, member of the A.Celli Paper Board of Directors.
