Valmet will supply Valmet DNA Distributed Control System (DCS) and Valmet IQ Quality Control System (QCS) with the latest web-based Valmet DNA User Interface to Union Paper Mills' paper machine PM 2 in its Dubai facility, in the United Arab Emirates.

The new systems will replace the existing DCS and QCS from another supplier and enable the mill to improve the operating efficiency and optimize the end-product quality with the latest automation technology.
The order was included in Valmet's orders received of the Q3 2023. The delivery and start-up will take place in 2024. The value of the order is not disclosed.
Valmet's delivery includes the Valmet DNA Distributed Control System with design, engineering, manufacturing, factory acceptance test and installation for PM 2.
The Valmet IQ Quality Control System will be supplied for PM 2 including scanners and related measurements and control applications, enabling improved machine performance and end-product quality.
The single system automation solution includes the new web-based Valmet DNA User interface which makes the most meaningful information available to all process automation users according to their roles, regardless of their location. The future-proof solution supports the extensions of Valmet Industrial Internet applications.
