Automation projects

From smooth implementation to fast, reliable start-up and beyond

An automation project, be it a greenfield or a retrofit project, is an important and major undertaking and we fully understand the importance of the investment. Even when focusing on our project engineering, we never lose track of that overall goal. This will make sure we deliver a truly value-adding project, giving you the benefit of an optimized solution for today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Minimized risks at the planning stage

Engineered by experts.

In automation projects, thorough planning is halfway to success. That’s why every project starts with careful specification executed interactively with your specialists. Detailed surveys, studies, and risk analysis help define the right scope for the delivery. The goal of careful preplanning is to achieve the process objectives and minimize risks. This way, we can deliver an automation project that ensures smooth integration of processes, technology, and automation.

 

 

Project delivered on-time, on-budget

Standardized delivery model.

It all starts with safety: it is never compromised in our daily operations. The same goes for cyber and information security. All Valmet units use the same product delivery model providing a clear and consistent gate-based execution from small rebuilds to a full Valmet mill or plant delivery. This will not only ensure quality in all the details but also provides a seamless delivery model independent of the scope or size of the project.

 

 

Pre-tested for no surprises on site

Comprehensive factory acceptance testing.

Thorough testing is a prerequisite for an excellent start-up. To ensure an efficient commissioning phase, all systems, applications, and components are pre-tested. Factory acceptance testing can also be completed fully remotely, via remote connections and a virtualized setup. The whole process; Flexible, safe, and efficient.

 

 

 

 

Efficient commissioning and start-up

System optimization for a fast start-up curve and consistent high performance.

During start-up, our team will make sure for an efficient process from installation, all the way via site testing to tuning and optimization of the process. Operator training is also performed to make sure your personnel have the needed knowledge to successfully operate the system. 

We make sure there is a smooth transition from the project team to the local service team who then will support any further need for optimization, training, or any other support as required.

 

 

What do our customers say about automation projects?

To sum up the whole project we are very satisfied with how it has been run as well as with the cooperation with Valmet. The result has been very good.
All three start-ups have been very successful and managed to achieve approved quality after just ninety minutes. Almost all our goals have been achieved, including shortening run-in periods and quality change times by 25%.
Success does not come automatically. There are a number of well-founded decisions and, not least, a skilled group of people on the site behind it.
