Controls, safety and management systems help meet demand for renewable packaging board

16 June 2015

Europe’s largest pulp, board and paper manufacturer, Stora Enso, is set to use process automation, safety system and manufacturing optimisation technologies  from Honeywell Process Solutions to modernise one of its key mills and help it meet rising demand for renewable packaging board.

Stora Enso Oyj is implementing the technologies as part of a modernisation and optimisation effort at its paper mill in Varkaus, Finland. 

The Stora Enso project coincides with conversion of the facility to produce kraftliner, a virgin-fiber-based containerboard. 

Upgrades to the mill include migrating the plant from its previous control system to Honeywell’s Experion PKS (Process Knowledge System), which offers a unified architecture for process control, safety systems and automation software. 

Experion Process, Machinery and Drives (PMD) controllers will also be utilized because they use a single, consistent set of engineering tools which can help to lower capital costs and offers more cost-effective execution of production line and plant-wide control, while the Uniformance Process History Database (PHD) will help Stora Enso to make better and faster decisions with superior data management, higher data security and reliability, and lower total cost of ownership.

To ensure plant safety, Safety Manager will be utilised. This integrates process safety data, applications, system diagnostics and critical control strategies and executes defined safety applications in a fully redundant architecture.
