Valmet automation and quality control systems for Union Paper Mills in Dubai

Valmet has confirmed it will supply its DNA Distributed Control System (DCS) and Valmet IQ Quality Control System (QCS) with the latest web-based Valmet DNA User Interface to Union Paper Mills’ PM 2 in its Dubai facility, in the UAE.

Union Paper Mills is situated in the United Arab Emirates with two sites: the Dubai facility and the Al Dhafra facility in Abu Dhabi, both producing recycled containerboard.

Union Paper Mills selected Valmet’s automation systems based on a successful previous project conducted in 2017 for the automation of PM 3 in its Al Dhafra facility in Abu Dhabi. The new systems will replace the existing DCS and QCS from another supplier and enable the mill to improve the operating efficiency and optimize the end-product quality with the latest automation technology.

“We have seen good performance of Valmet DNA Distributed Control System and Valmet IQ Quality Control System at Al Dhafra mill and several other references in the region. And Valmet’s local service team from Valmet’s United Arab Emirates office provides good and competent service,” says Chander Prakash Sharma, Automation Manager, Union Paper Mills.

“We are proud to get the trust and this repeat order from our customer. This confirms that we have made good work as the leading automation supplier in the area with a strong service team,” says Christian Kallich, Area Sales Director, Pulp & Paper, Automation Systems business line, Valmet.
