Mondi has partnered with Tieto and Metso to to increase the efficiency and profitability of the pulp and paper production at Mondi's Syktyvkar Mill in Russia. Tieto and Metso provide the mill advanced control and optimization systems for the fiber lines. By improving the overall operation of the fiber line Mondi will improve the yield, chemical consumption and production capacity of the three lines, leading to significant reduction in operating costs and improving productivity.

The advance control and optimization system for Syktyvkar includes the following process areas: three continuous digesters, three brownstock washing lines, two oxygen delignification lines, and two bleach plants. The Tieto part, Tieto Integrated Paper Solution TIPS, applications include budgeting, order entry, production, process and quality management integrated into mill-level reporting.

The flexible optimization options from Metso for each application are Continuous digester, Washing optimizer, Oxygen delignification optimizer and Bleaching optimizer. Coordinating these various applications maximizes the overall benefit for Mondi for fiber line optimization. These applications join the almost four hundred Pulping and Recovery Advance Control Applications Metso has installed globally.

The Mondi Group is an integrated packaging and business paper manufacturer with production operations in 28 countries and around 23,400 employees. Tieto is the leading IT service company in Northern Europe providing IT and product engineering services with about 18,000 employees.
