The fully web-based process control system includes a cybersecure system architecture, control software and hardware, engineering and analytics tools, which the company said helps customers improve efficiency, productivity, sustainability and safety of their operations.

“It provides a solid platform for moving towards more digitalised, autonomous operations, helping our customers thrive in the changing business environment.

“In the development of this new system, we have focused on usability and performance, with a modular approach that enables upgrade paths also from our previous system generations.”

Torttila-Miettinen added that the launch “is a major step” in Valmet’s plans for growing its automation business, and in bringing automation solutions to a wide base of process industries globally.

Valmet DNAe provides a common user interface for controls, analytics, configuration, and maintenance.
