Metso Paper and M-real Corporation have signed a cooperation agreement covering the annual maintenance and performance development of three paper production lines. The agreement provides a framework for the long-term development of production line uptime, cost effectiveness and the quality of the paper produced. It relates to the Metso Future Care business concept, which aims to optimize efficiency throughout the production line life cycle.

The agreement covers separately defined process and condition tests to be carried out on two paper machines at M-real’s Kangas mill and on one machine at their Äänekoski mill, as well as preventive maintenance programs. Metso will also be responsible for the long-term performance development of M-Real’s Kangas mill production lines together with the customer.

Metso Paper has concluded in Europe over 20 extensive cooperation agreements relating to the development and maintenance of paper production lines.
