Valmet Oyj is taking process automation further by introducing the next-generation distributed control system (DCS), the Valmet DNAe. The fully web-based process control system comes with a new cybersecure system architecture, control software and hardware, engineering and analytics tools, helping customers improve efficiency, productivity, sustainability and safety of their operations. The launch is a major step in the company's roadmap for growing its automation business further and in bringing unrivalled future-proof automation solutions to a wide base of process industries globally.

With this new system, the company will have an excellent opportunity to continue expanding the footprint of its automation systems business worldwide. Designed to support the work of all process automation user groups: Valmet DNAe is developed with a design philosophy to empower people to perform and collaborate better across the organization. The system provides a common user interface for controls, analytics, configuration, and maintenance.

Intuitive workflows simplify operations and enable users to manage larger process areas with less effort. Advanced analytics tools enable turning real-time and historical data into actionable insights.

These features are designed to increase the operational efficiency of customers. Valmet DNAe has been engineered for demanding process control, emphasizing performance and availability.

It features a scalable redundant data platform, granting easy and controlled access to all data. The system architecture is cybersecure by design, with role-based access control, authentication, audit trail and encryption mechanisms for proactive prevention of cyber threats. With smooth OT/IT (Operational technology /Information technology) connectivity through secure communication interfaces with external systems, Valmet DNAe establishes a robust base for advancing digitalization and autonomous operations.

In alignment with Valmet's lifetime systems compatibility promise, a leading principle in Valmet DNAe's development has been to make it easy for Valmet's existing process automation customers to benefit from the latest technology.
