The facility uses kraft pulp in newsprint production to achieve specific quality characteristics.

PlantWeb field-based architecture components installed at the site will include Rosemount fieldbus transmitters, Fisher Fieldvue digital valve controllers, and a Fisher-Rosemount Systems Delta V scalable process automation system, as well as I/O devices for existing transmitters. Two fieldbus segments will be installed in the kraft paper area. The installation, which is scheduled to start early this year, is expected to cut costs by reducing wiring needs, and lessening field and remote instrument diagnostics requirements.
