Abstract: The AbitibiBowater Knogami mill has made a lot of efforts in the past years to improve their energy efficiency through measurement system and good energy practices. To achieve and sustain higher energy performance, the mill worked together with Pepite Technologies Inc. to develop an innovative energy management step-by-step approach. Several data mining tools have been implemented to troubleshoot root causes of energy variations and to build model-based KPIs and smart alarms to sustain high performance. This approach helps the mill to save $600,000 per year without any extra investment.
