Valmet is introducing a maintenance operations agreement for the development and outsourcing of mill and plant maintenance operations for energy, pulp, paper, board and tissue customers.

“We want to ensure the maximal reliability and optimized performance of our customers’ production processes,” says Timo Harjunpää, director, maintenance operations and development, services at Valmet, in a statement.

“In brownfield cases, we can help customers to reduce maintenance costs by approximately 10 to 20 per cent and increase efficiency by five to 10 per cent. With a new investment, we help to secure a world-class start-up curve and accelerate the return on the investment. We will establish a maintenance management model and organization already before the start,” says Harjunpää.

The agreement is tailored to customer needs, and can include easy access to Valmet experts, products and services, maintenance or the continuous development of performance to achieve mutually agreed targets.

Valmet’s typical service agreements range from corporate-level frame agreements to mill-level partnership agreements.
