Automation provided for pulp mill in Uruguay

The $1.9 billion Montes del Plata pulp mill in Southern Uruguay will receive process and quality control as well as process information systems by Honeywell

09/22/2011


Honeywell Process Solutions has been chosen to provide the process control, quality control and process information systems – including warehouse management – for a new pulp mill in Uruguay. Located in Uruguay’s southern state of Colonia, the $1.9-billion facility will produce 1.3 million tons of plantation-based pulp annually once it becomes operational in the first half of 2013.

The Montes del Plata project is expected to become the country’s largest-ever privately executed investment. It will be owned and operated by a joint-venture between Finnish pulp and paper company Stora Enso and Chile-based Arauco.

“This mill will have a significant impact not only on the region’s pulp production capabilities, but also on the local economy. It will employ 6,000 people at the peak of the construction and 500 once in operation,” said Carlos Pastrana, project director at Montes del Plata.

The project will incorporate Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), which will be deployed across the entire mill to tie critical subsystems together. This approach will streamlines operations and provide operators with the most-relevant information they need to make decisions in the control rooms and on the mill floor. Also included in the project scope is Honeywell’s newest quality control system (QCS), Experion MX, and Honeywell’s Process Information Management System.
