"Start-up of the previous Valmet-supplied OptiConcept M (PM 16) in Valparaiso, Indiana, was exceptional. We have also been able to exceed some of the design features of the machine resulting in very good production figures. Both board machines in Valparaiso and Wapakoneta are showcases for the latest in 21st century paper-making technology," says Anthony Pratt, Global Chairman of Pratt Industries.

Valmet OptiConcept M board making line is designed to use less water, electricity and raw materials."We want to help many companies to meet their sustainability goals without sacrificing their high-performance packaging requirements. That's important not only for our environment but also for our customers who realize the importance of sustainable packaging," says Pratt.

Technical details about the delivery

Valmet's scope of delivery will be similar to the Pratt PM 16 started-up in 2015 with a complete OptiConcept M board production line from headbox to winder with a wide scope of automation.

"OptiConcept M is a new and modular way to design, build and operate a paper machine. Its modular approach enables short delivery times, quick start-up and low project costs. This will be Valmet's second OptiConcept M installation in North America and 15th globally. We are all proud to continue the work and cooperation with Pratt on this project," says Mike Gray, Vice President, Capital Business, Valmet North America.

Valmet has introduced a predictive tool for detecting recovery boiler leaks - Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector. This innovative diagnostics application with advanced analytics enables boiler owners to detect even the smallest tube leaks in an unprecedented way, resulting in significantly improved boiler safety and reduced damage risks.

valmet logoTypically, distributed control systems (DCS) have only relatively primitive tools for recovery boiler leak detection. These include simple differentials between the feedwater and the steam, or alarms for low drum level and high furnace pressure that are activated only in the case of very large and sudden leaks. With these traditional tools, it is virtually impossible to notice a minor leak in the boiler furnace. A small undetected leak may grow, rupture a tube and lead to severe damages or even to a major smelt-water explosion. 

"Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector now takes leak detection a major step forward by combining advanced mass and chemical balance calculations. This makes it an invaluable diagnostics tool for detecting leaks at their early stages," says Timo Laurila, Business Manager, Recovery Analyzers and Advanced Process Controls, Valmet.

Currently, the leak detection solution is used by several pulp mills, and the results gained with it have been very positive.

Technical information about Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector

Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector typically recognizes a 0.25-0.50% difference between the feedwater and the steam in the feedwater flow. Additionally, the application features an advanced chemical balance calculation, which enables higher accuracy and identification of critical leaks and separation from non-critical leaks. The balance is typically calculated using phosphate as a tracer.

Alarm levels can be set low enough so that a leak can be diagnosed before a tube is ruptured. As boiler load swings are taken into account, there are no unnecessary alarms due to changes in load.

Leak rate monitoring and alarms can be tested safely during normal operation by using a blowout line for leak simulation. Operator instructions and training for boiler leak detection and management are included in the delivery scope.

Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector is part of the Valmet Recovery Boiler Optimizer product portfolio and can be implemented on any DCS.

The Board of Directors of Valmet Oyj has decided on a new long-term share-based incentive plan for Valmet's key employees. The aim of the plan is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the key employees in order to increase the value of the Company in the long run, to commit the key employees to the Company, and to offer them a competitive reward plan based on holding the Company's shares.

valmet logoThe plan includes three discretionary periods, which are the calendar years 2018, 2019 and 2020. Valmet's Board of Directors shall decide on the performance criteria and targets in the beginning of each discretionary period. The potential reward from the discretionary period 2018 is based on Valmet's Comparable EBITA margin and orders received growth (%) of the stable business, that is, the Services and Automation business lines. The potential reward from the discretionary period 2018 will be paid partly in Company shares and partly in cash in 2019. The proportion to be paid in cash is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to the key employee.

Furthermore, the members of Valmet's Executive Team are recommended to own and hold an amount of Company shares equaling to their gross annual base salary (100 percent ownership recommendation).

The rewarded shares may not be transferred during the restriction period, which will end two years from the end of the discretionary period. As a rule, no reward is paid if the key employee's employment or service at Valmet ends before the reward payment. Should a key employee's employment or service end during the restriction period, he or she must, as a rule, gratuitously return the shares given as reward to the Company.

The plan is directed to a total of approximately 120 participants, of which 80 are key employees in management positions (including Executive Team members), and 40 are management talents, which is a new target group in Valmet's share based incentive plan. The total combined reward to be paid based on the plan is capped to an approximate maximum of 586,000 shares in Valmet Oyj, representing the gross reward before the deduction of taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward.

The second part of the youth program started by Valmet and the Children and Youth Foundation in the spring has started today, November 15, at several of Valmet's units in Finland. As a part of the program Valmet enables paid practical training of three weeks for 100 young people. The participants to the unique program include young people aged 16-29 years who may, for instance, have challenges in finding their own path or with their basic working life skills.

valmet logoNinety people applied for the fall program, and the 55 who were chosen started today in the following Valmet units: Espoo, Jyväskylä, Järvenpää, Raisio and Tampere. In the spring, young people also participated at the Tampere, Pori, Ulvila and Kajaani units.

"We wanted to celebrate Valmet's 220-year industrial history and the centenary of Finland's independence in a truly valuable way. Promoting employment among young people is important for society and an investment in the future. I hope that other companies will follow our example and provide young people with paid practical training and opportunities to learn working life skills," says Pasi Laine, President and CEO of Valmet.

Mentors and partners play a significant role in supporting the young people

Valmet's program was planned and is executed in cooperation with the Children and Youth Foundation, Academic Work and WorkPilots. Valmet plans and offers paid training and mentors from Valmet for the young people. The Children and Youth Foundation is responsible for recruiting young people for the program and for coaching their mentors. Academic Work provides the participants with coaching in job seeking and study-related issues as part of the program. WorkPilots helps young people in finding paths for continuing their journey. 

"Each of the participants gets a personal mentor from Valmet, responsible for creating a safe and inspiring environment for the trainees and providing meaningful assignments that help them practice their working life skills and build their self-confidence. I am glad that so many Valmeteers have been ready to help these young people and act as mentors," says Anu Salonsaari-Posti from Valmet's working group for the youth program.

Excellent experiences from the first part of the program

Those who participated in the program in the spring said that they received new self-confidence and courage. Especially important for them was to receive positive feedback, gain feelings of success and to be part of the work community. Working within a work community helped the young people meet new people and act in new situations. As their favorite job assignments, the young participants listed, among other things, preparing PowerPoint presentations, taking photos, filing documents and scanning.

"The practice opportunity in the spring provided many young people with important lessons for the future. The first experiences at work are very important. They will be used to build an image of one's own skills, interests and the future working life. Successful experiences strengthen the young people's self-esteem, provide courage and spur them to try things out. Valmet has worked hard to provide an opportunity for young people to get successful experiences and strengthen their working life skills in an encouraging environment. We are happy to participate in cooperation where the young people's path toward the working life is supported with consideration of their starting point," says Tuula Colliander, Executive Director of the Children and Youth Foundation.

"Academic Work supports and helps young people specifically at the beginning of their path in working life, so this cooperation program was fully in line with our values. In addition, meeting young people in various situations in life also provides a learning opportunity to our own personnel, and we are eagerly anticipating this stage of the project. More than 20 people from Academic Work will participate in mentoring the young trainees in different locations in Finland," says Laura Korpilauri from Academic Work.
