Metso Corporation's press release on December 18, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. local time
With better process control, the mill can improve its overall performance and
decrease its environmental footprint
Mondi SCP a.s. has placed an extensive order with Metso for advanced automation
technology for its RuÅ¾omberok pulp and paper mill in the Slovak Republic. The
mill is building a new recovery boiler and a turbine, as well as extending its
evaporation plant and lime kiln, which will be run with Metso's automation
system. High-tech automation contributes to lower costs, raw material usage,
energy consumption and environmental load, while enabling the mill to achieve
its targeted quality and performance.
"We chose Metso's solution in order to take advantage of synergies with our
existing mill environment, making use of the knowledge of our professionals and
operators, as well as minimizing side costs. Another factor that supported our
choice of Metso as a supplier was our good experience and cooperation in the
past," says Michal Legersky, Project Manager, Mondi SCP a.s.
Metso's scope of delivery will include a complete Metso DNA automation system
for the new recovery boiler 3 and the turbine, the evaporation plant and lime
kiln extension, as well as for the upgraded operator stations in recovery boiler
2. The delivery also includes application engineering and commissioning. The
major part of Metso's automation system will be started up in the fall of 2014.
"The mill already has Metso DNA in all other areas of the recovery island, so
the operators are familiar with the system," comments Udo Schober, Area Sales
Manager, Automation, Metso.
With production exceeding 474,000 tons of pulp and 535,000 tons of uncoated
paper, Mondi SCP is the largest integrated mill producing paper and pulp in the
Slovak Republic. Over 77% of its production can be identified as "green" since
the energy used for its production comes from biogenic resources while the wood
comes from certified, well-managed forests under FSC(TM) and PEFC schemes. The
increased volumes of production thus work synchronized with continuously
decreasing the mill's footprint on the environment.
The Automation segment's process automation and flow control solutions meet the
growing needs of Metso's customer industries to improve production process
efficiency as raw materials and energy sources become scarcer and their costs
increase. Our global network of service experts delivers business solutions to
our customers that improve their productivity, lower risks and optimize costs.
Metso is a global supplier of technology and services to customers in the
process industries, including mining, construction, pulp and paper, power, and
oil and gas. Our 30,000 professionals based in over 50 countries contribute to
sustainability and deliver profitability to customers worldwide. Metso's shares
are listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd.
