On March 16 and April 24, the Philippine paper and tissue producer Bataan 2020, Inc. has fired up two Toscotec’s steel Yankee dryers TT SYD-3600MM at its Samal mill in Bataan province, Philippines. Toscotec’s second generation TT SYD replaced previous installations of cast iron Yankees on PM2 and PM5.
The scope of supply also includes erection supervision, commissioning and start-up assistance, as well as onsite training programs on operation and maintenance.
With this new double reference, Toscotec enters the growing Philippine market and strengthens its undiscussed leadership as global manufacturer of steel Yankee dryers. In Asia alone, Toscotec has sold over one hundred TT SYD, out of more than 200 units worldwide. Particularly in the segment of replacing cast iron Yankee with steel Yankee dryers, Toscotec is very far ahead of the game, with over 80 TT SYD replacements in five continents around the world.
Mr. Emmanuel Gaspar, Executive Vice President of Bataan 2020, Inc. declared, “At Bataan 2020, we are committed to responsible industrial production to protect the environment. Among other projects, we produce steam from renewable power sources. Toscotec’s TT SYD make it possible for us to actually reduce steam consumption and keep up the highest standard of efficiency on our operations. We are happy to say that the two TT SYD have been performing extremely well since start-up”.
Gabriele Martinelli, Toscotec’s Area Sales Manager Asia & Pacific replied, “We are very proud to see Toscotec’s cutting edge technology applied to a green project, such as Bataan 2020’s. The market is definitely moving toward the most efficient drying solutions, which deliver the best performances with the lowest ecological footprint. This is why we are confident that TT SYD and its continuous evolutions will play an increasingly important role in the years to come”.
