Traditionally, in a pulp mill, different operations such as woodyard, digester, recovery boiler etc., are controlled from separate control rooms. The integration of the management and control systems into a single control room provides unparalleled connectivity, a complete overview of the mill and increased process efficiency and productivity.
SCA Östrand’s integrated, digitalized solution includes a new control system and new operating center, which features seven Extended Operator Workplaces. Operators enjoy a clear process overview, as well as possibilities to personalize ergonomics and the work environment in every aspect, from working posture to sound and lighting.
"The joint operation center with a common interface allows operators to have a good understanding of the whole, which gives even better conditions to optimize the overall flow and facilitates training," says Ekebro.
