Performance agreements for chemical recovery

Driving plant development forward through Performance Agreement

One efficient way to improve the productivity and profitability of your assets is to enter into a long-term service agreement with Valmet. The agreement is always tailored according to each customer’s specific needs.

Valmet's performance agreement is a plant-wide cooperation program aimed at maintaining and improving competitiveness throughout the plant. A goal-oriented performance agreement ensures measurable results – such as decreased overall downtime.

In the same way as a sports coach works to perfect the performance of a professional athlete, Valmet seeks ways to achieve the highest possible efficiency and boost production levels. Through a systematic development project, we offer new ideas and the latest technology. Put simply, the performance agreement is an excellent tool for maximizing production, developing maintenance, and cutting costs.

Systematic process improvements

By benchmarking the results of other plants and utilizing the experience of Valmet’s skilled personnel, specific limitations can be addressed and critical bottlenecks solved. Our broad process understanding enables us to continuously introduce new products and services that meet our customers’ most demanding needs. Systematic process improvements and long-term partnerships have demonstrated Valmet’s ability to speed up production growth and efficiency.

Performance agreement tailored to specific needs

Performance cooperation


Improvements are measured using key performance indicators set together with the customer. Whether the targets selected relate to improving productivity, saving energy and raw materials, or to availability development, a performance agreement has the potential to improve performance at every stage of the production line. A systematic approach to improving plant operations can mean a potential increase of 10% in production and up to 7% savings on energy costs – depending on the targets set and the customer’s commitment. 

Why choose a performance agreement?

A performance agreement integrates every action necessary to drive customer targets forward. This requires seamless teamwork and well-tailored development processes. Targets are reached by adopting a systematic process and building a team of experts, including named contact persons, process analyses, remote diagnostics, specialists, development teams, and on-site support.

Efficient payback

As a full-scope machinery supplier, Valmet designs each tailor-made agreement to match the customer's specific targets and current situation. We cooperate worldwide with a variety of customers using a wide range of machinery, and some of our agreements have been in place for more than 15 years.

Customers can expect significant results with a payback time of less than six months during the entire contract period. Meanwhile, we continuously focus on reducing costs, improving production efficiency and facilitating operational excellence.
