Tieto and Valmet have begun a cooperation to support energy producers in utilizing new digitalisation technologies to enhance fuel supply chain management and transparency.
One of Tieto's most recent developments with other forest industry companies is a service called Forest Hub. This service provides an interface for energy producers, such as power plants who want to buy and share information easier with biofuel suppliers and logistics companies.
Valmet's DNA Fuel Chain Management application complements the Forest Hub service by providing fuel related data that enables all partners within the Forest Hub service to comply with the Finnish Energy Authorities' new directive to verify the origin of biofuel. Valmet offers fuel reporting for power plants and their fuel suppliers through Valmet's cloud-based Industrial Internet applications. Centralized fuel reporting utilizes fuel analysis data from the power plant and fuel supplier data that is received through Forest Hub.
With the help of the Forest Hub service and the Valmet DNA Fuel Chain Management solution, power plants can send and receive information to and from all service and fuel providers. The combined service provides information about upcoming fuel load deliveries, ensuring faster and more effective reception proceedings with fewer possibilities for mistakes. The load-specific measuring information sent back to the supplier enables quick and continuous delivery quality control and further process improvements.
The wood and fibre supply chain is multidimensional, with a large number of business transactions being processed between different organizations. With the help of Tieto Forest Hub, all parties can exchange relevant business information.
