Sofidel announced that the upgrading works at its Swedish tissue site in Kisa, Sweden, have been concluded. The new and innovative converting plant is now fully operational with two active production lines: the first line is focused on toilet tissues, whilst the second line can produce both kitchen towels and toilet tissues.
This project was particularly challenging as its implementation involved the diversion of the Kisa river by approximately 300 meters.
By adapting techniques that have as yet been mainly used in the food & beverage sector, Sofidel developed an automatic reel conveying system process for the first time in its history, which transfers them between the paper mill and the converting plant, and the fully automated control system of the finished product: from the line ends to the loading bays via the warehouse. This choice has saved approximately 40% of the space.
The Sofidel Group is a world leader in the manufacture of paper for hygienic and domestic use.
