August 24, 2009 – ABB will provide automation systems and related services to help Chinese papermaker Shandong Huatai Corporation improve the output of its wood pulp production lines. ABB is working with Chemical and Pulping Ltd. (CPL) on this project to provide the Rizhao Huatai mill with technology that supports the production of a green product, pulp made out of fast growing wood. ABB will be supplying System 800xA as the platform for CPL’s Displacement Digester System (DDS). The DDS will help the mill’s fast growing wood production achieve a “4-high” – optimization rate of energy and chemicals, high pulp conversion rate and high production efficiency. ABB will also supply accompanying automation equipment, systems and engineering services. “The strong union of ABB and CPL is advancing DDS technology throughout the world by upgrading production efficiency, raising the pulp yielding rate and reducing use of steam and chemicals,” said Lin Shuming, head of ABB Pulp & Paper North Asia. CPL is a US company that provides technology and equipment for the pulp, paper and chemical industry. The company’s DDS solution employs the world’s leading batch digester technology, which saves energy and chemicals and yields high quality pulp. ABB’s award-winning 800xA provides paper mills with improved productivity and profitability. System 800xA extends the scope of mill control systems to include all automation functions in a single operations and engineering system. It also serves as the integration foundation for a number of unique industry-specific automation applications.
