The order also includes a Valmet performance centre agreement to support efficient production with Industrial Internet. Valmet is a leading company in the pulp, paper, and energy industries.

The new tissue line will fulfil 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, Valmet said in a press release.

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,” Paul Ekman, CEO, Alas Doradas said.

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