As part of the project, Valmet claims that the mill will replace LPG with Gasum’s LNG in the burners of the drying processes on its tissue machines.
According to the statement, Valmet’s automation system will be used to control the burners of the drying processes and manage a gas terminal that will be connected to Valmet’s data collection application. The delivery will reportedly standardise and optimise the tissue drying process and quality management.
The Sales and Marketing Director of Gasum, Tommy Mattila, said: “Valmet's flexible approach and familiarisation with Metsä Tissue enabled us to offer a turnkey delivery to the customer.”
Juhani Tuomaala, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet, added: “Valmet will enhance the Metsä Tissue mill's fuel switch to LNG, which is a safe form of energy with low emissions. At the same time, both Gasum and Metsä Tissue gain access to the latest software updates.”
Valmet claims that it will update and expand the Valmet DNA automation system on the tissue machines to modernise burner controls and the drying process management. The company’s delivery will include automation controls with DNA Modbus links to the burner and gas terminal PLCs, as well as necessary DNA I/O expansions on the tissue machine automation systems. In addition to this, the delivery also includes DNA software updates and expansions in the process air systems, as well as the drying power control systems, of the tissue machines.
Gasum will implement all of the necessary modifications for the switch to LNG, as well all equipment installation.
