Optimation has extensive knowledge and experience of process and advanced process control technologies in the pulp and paper industry.

We have reference installations within all process areas in the pulp and paper mill.

Optimation co-operates with Eurocon in the pulp and paper industry. Together we have extensive knowledge and experience of Process and Advanced Process Control technologies.

"Optimation changed our entire steam distribution management philosophy giving us a plant that is, simply put, easier and functions better.

Optimation has been good to work with; they're very reliable. Everything they presented was well substantiated and we have never had to question their work. They have the ability to really optimize the new technique. One example is the virtual model of the steam network. The model was intended as both an educational tool and a tool to simulate what could happen in the event of future adjustments. We were sceptical and said 'yes, yes, I'm sure it will be fine' but it proved to work perfectly. It was used every time an adjustment was to be made and, as far as I know, we have never had any problems in making different adjustments. Naturally, it was invaluable."

Enthusiastic students, good software and skilled teachers very rapidly gave increased efficiency in the Chilean Nueva Aldea mill.
– The eyes glowed on the Chilean engineers when they realized how much they could gain by optimizing the controllers, tells Urban Holmedahl.

SCA implemented, by the end of 2013, a comprehensive modernization of its liner factory in Munksund. A larger and more modern pre-steaming bin with a new type of chip conveyor is one piece of that giant puzzle. With an optimized control it gives the new pre-steaming unit improvements regarding economy, energy efficiency and the environment. The operators may focus on optimizing the cooking of the pulp.

When Billerud Korsna's factory in Gävle was to rebuild and renew its energy production, the development of new control strategies began early in collaboration with Optimation AB.
