Ittihad Paper Mill to take maintenance shutdown at Abu Dhabi mill in UAE

Ittihad Paper Mill (IPM) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, has again selected Valmet as the main supplier of field services to its annual shutdown in 2024. The shutdown will take place at the end of July 2024. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

Since the inauguration of Ittihad Paper Mill's paper machine (PM1) in 2019, IPM and Valmet have continuously worked together to secure top productivity and competitiveness of the mill. To the mill's annual shutdown in 2024, Valmet will for the second consecutive year deliver a comprehensive selection of field services including targeted equipment audits, maintenance planning, shutdown management and execution of the maintenance work.

Valmet's delivery includes a comprehensive selection of field services both prior to and during the Ittihad Paper Mill's annual shutdown. Valmet will perform a machine alignment check as well as inspection and maintenance of several paper machine sections and parts such as Valmet Disc Filter, OptiFlo Gap headbox, Valmet SymBelt Shoe Press Roll, OptiSizer Film, OptiCalender Hard and OptiWin Drum two-drum base winders. Valmet will also be responsible for the planning and management of the shutdown.

Ittihad Paper Mill began its commercial operation in 2020. IPM has a capacity of 325,000 tons annually, equivalent of 65 billion A4 sheets, and caters to the growing regional demand for printing and writing paper that has traditionally relied on imports, while also serving the international markets.

Valmet is a leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
