ABB receives order from Södra Cell

ABB has won an order from Södra Cell to implement optimization control for the pulp and paper manufacturer's mill in Värö, Sweden. Södra Cell currently owns some of the world's most modern and high-tech pulp mills, and the ambition is to operate the mills even more efficient and sustainable.

The delivery from ABB includes extended functionality for the ABB Ability System 800xA distributed control system (DCS) through the implementation of advanced process control (APC) for the bleaching process at the Södra Cell mill in Värö. The solution has previously been successfully implemented at Södra Cell's pulp mill in Mönsterås, Sweden, where digesters and bleach controls have been optimized resulting in improved process stability and reduced resource consumption.

The APC implementation includes close collaboration with the operations and process departments at the mill in Värö. The ABB team of experts perform operational and process analysis, development and verification of models, implementation in the control system as well as training and handover to the operating organization. The delivery is planned to be commissioned in the spring/summer of 2024.

The integration of APC into the existing operator environment, ABB Ability System 800xA, provides strengthened opportunities for operators to run fully automatically but also to be able to predict outcomes, which provides the opportunity to optimize and prioritize crucial operational processes in the bleach plant based on data-driven decisions. The APC solution is one of several examples where existing ABB systems are being expanded with new functionalities that improve both customers' profitability, efficiency and working environment.

ABB's Process Automation business automates, electrifies and digitalizes industrial operations.
