Lucca, Italy 22 March 2017 - The Italian company EuroVast has chosen Toscotec again to expand the capacity of its Cartiera della Basilica at Botticino's plant.
The new machine, a MODULO-PLUS crescent former with single press configuration, TT SYD-3200MM and TT MilltechHood, is the perfect solution to meet Eurovast's need: high quality tissue product, attention to energy saving and eco-sustainability were determining factors in choosing advanced Toscotec's technology for this project .
The new TM with a maximum production capacity up to 30,000 tonnes/year and a paper trim width of 2740 mm will replace the existing suction breast roll machine and will be started up in the last quarter of 2017.
Engineering services, installation supervision, commissioning and start-up are all
included in Toscotec's scope of supply.

After almost 25 years of experience in the private label sector we are ready to satisfy every customer request, always focusing on the promotion of the product and in the development of new solutions." said Vincenzo Romano, owner of Eurovast SpA.
