Long experience of doing performance development with Valmet

Kemi pulp mill was the first Metsä Fibre mill to take long term development agreement into use regarding its recovery boiler and evaporation plant. Starting with automation over ten years ago and later the other offerings were included to the agreement at the beginning of 2008. The agreement is between Metsä Fibre and Valmet*, connecting Valmet's knowledge of technology and automation into the use for Metsä Fibre.

Continuity is the key of the co-operation

Pekka Posti means expert presence at the mill gives all parties security. ´The security that there will be experts at Metsä Fibre Kemi mill and to Valmet that they can keep those persons at their payroll. It is important that those persons are the same for several years, because of the learning curve.´.

*) product and company names changed from Metso to Valmet. Valmet demerged from Metso on December 31st 2013 and acquired Metso’s Process Automation System business and products on April 1st 2015.
