International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Xuan Mai Paper Co. Ltd. to supply a PrimeLineCOMPACT S1800 tissue machine for its production line PM2 at its mill located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The tissue machine will enable the production of high-quality tissue grades made of either 100% virgin or 100% deinked pulp (DIP). Start-up is scheduled for 2024.
