Lenzing starts up Tencel facility
The Lenzing Group has successfully initiated production at its new TENCEL-« jumbo production facility, the largest in the world, at the Lenzing site in Upper Austria. The plant is in the midst of a stable ramp-up phase. The feedback on the part of the market is very positive.
This factory comprises the first time in which a single production line with an annual nominal capacity of 67,000 tons was installed. Previous TENCEL-« production lines were usually only one-quarter as large. The new plant design incorporates lessons learned from the longstanding experience of three existing Lenzing Group TENCEL-« production plants located in Austria, USA and Great Britain. As a consequence, the new TENCEL-« plant in Lenzing represents the world´s leading generation of TENCEL-« technology. The new design of the jumbo production line also enables investment costs to be maintained at a very competitive level.
