Case: Optimizing, planning, and tuning water and energy balance
Tools: Vipetec Analysis™ & Optimization
Challenge in the production process
Paper and board mills have subprocesses where water and energy balance optimization may produce remarkable energy savings.
To obtain cost savings by optimizing, planning, and tuning water and energy balance.
We did a water and energy balance optimization project for our client. We organized data collection and metrics to measure the efficiency of the system’s operation. We used our tools to analyze the operation of the system in various situations and made a development proposal. The development proposals were reviewed with the customer and the implementation was agreed upon. Vipetec planned the necessary changes, which were implemented in cooperation with the customer’s maintenance. We did the implementation and testing in cooperation. Vipetec fine-tuned the system, after which a follow-up period was carried out to ensure functionality.
The new control system has worked clearly better than before in different operation situations, and heat recovery has been clearly improved. From the factory’s side, it was stated that the project was successful, the results are good and the goals we set out to achieve were reached. In the words of the client, ‘Good, great project’.
